What is gastroenteroscopy? How to do it?
Gastrointestinal endoscopy is the most intuitive inspection method for gastrointestinal diseases. Doctors can clearly observe the microscopic lesions in the gastrointestinal tract through gastrointestinal endoscopy, and can also obtain diseased tissue samples through biopsy, and conduct further microscopic examination to make the disease easier.
