Endoscopy means looking inside and typically refers to looking inside any object for its non-accebality.

This is done by using an instrument called an endoscope.

This is particularly used by doctors for examination inside a human body.

Endoscopy can also refer to using a borescope in technical situations where direct line-of-sight observation is not feasible.

How done[]

Endoscopy is used to assess the interior surfaces of any object by inserting a tube into the equipment. The instrument may have a rigid or flexible tube and to provide an image for visual inspection and photography for further action.

In the case of engineers[]

It provides a visual image of the inside of a machinery, for further action.

In the case of doctors[]

A flexible endoscope.

In the case of doctors, where it is mostly used, for examination of a living body, it also enables taking biopsies and retrieval of foreign objects.

Discomforts[]

Many endoscopic procedures for use on living beings are considered to be relatively painless and, at worst, associated with mild discomfort.

Equipment components[]

An endoscope can consist of a rigid or flexible tube, (made for a specific purpose), with a light delivery system to illuminate the part or object under inspection.

The light source is normally outside and the light is typically directed via an optical fiber system. A lens (optics) system will transmit the image to the viewer from the fiberscope.

Uses[]

Endoscopy can involve many uses for engineers and surgeons.
