Enteroscopy allows direct visualization of the upper gastrointestinal tract or the bowels. An endoscope is a thin, flexible tube that is inserted into the mouth or nose. In a colonoscopy, the tube is inserted through the rectum to view the small intestine. Enterescopy is used to examine tumors in the small intestine, gastrointestinal bleeding and unexplained diarrhea. Enterescopy can help in identifying conditions such as Crohn's disease, Amyloidosis, Ulcers, polyps and enlarged lymph nodes. Double balloon enteroscopy involves balloons fixed to the end of the tube so as to inflate the small intestine for better examination.Tags: #Enteroscopy
