Expert Video - What is endoscopy?

They describe the different types of endoscopic procedures that may be used, depending on what is being examined: upper endoscopy (esophagogastroduodenoscopy, or EGD), push enteroscopy, deep endoscopy, and also advanced endoscopic procedures such as Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) and Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP).
