Gastroscopy (also known as an upper GI endoscopy) is a procedure that enables a gastroenterologist to examine the lining of the upper part of your gastrointestinal tract, i.e. the esophagus (swallowing tube), stomach, and duodenum (first portion of the small intestine) using a thin flexible tube that has a camera lens and light source.

Gastrointestinal Endoscope is a device or an instrument that allows a doctor or surgeon to look inside the body through existing openings or through small incisions. These instruments are used for inspecting the internal lining of the gastrointestinal tract. They help in detecting the cause of abdominal bleeding, any persistent pain, vomiting, tumor affecting the GI tract, inflation, etc. Any infections or abnormalities in function of this GI tract are detected by means of gastrointestinal endoscopic devices.
Gastroscopy is more accurate than X-Ray films for detecting inflammation, ulcers, or tumors of the esophagus, stomach, and duodenum. Biopsies (small tissue samples) may be taken at the time of your gastroscopy.The instrument used is called Gastroscope, a flexible tube with a diameter less than that of a little finger. The gastroscope has light and a camera at the end. The camera sends pictures of the lining of your esophagus, stomach, and duodenum to a screen, where the endoscopist is able to look at them. All through the examination, the endoscopist may need to take some small tissues samples, called biopsies, for analysis under a microscope in lab.
Gastrointestinal endoscopy is an industry driven by quickly evolving technology, an aging population all through the globe, and the augmented recognition of problems associated with morbid obesity that can sometimes be addressed by relatively noninvasive or minimally invasive actions. There are many drivers for this market, counting the evolution of technology so that many endoscopic-related diagnostic procedures are noninvasive, and the growing requirements by employer-based and government-funded health insurance companies for covered insurance members.
The endoscope is a metal tube that has a small light source and camera at one end and an eyepiece at the other. Endoscopes may be made from an inflexible tube or, additional often, from a flexible tube that allows the surgeon to generously move and regulate it as it enters the area that is being observed. Upgraded designs of the equipment have also made flexible GI endoscopes easier to handle, and smaller instrumentation has permitted for more dedicated devices. As such kind of developments take place in the market; they will drive growth in unit sales, which will drive growth in the market value. Global Gastrointestinal Endoscope Market is segmented by Segment (Colonoscopy, Gastroscope, Duodenoscope and Eosophagoscopes).
