Endoscopy

An upper endoscopy, often referred to as endoscopy, is a procedure that permits a physician to directly examine the upper part of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. This includes the esophagus, the stomach, and the duodenum (the first section of the small intestine) 

The physician who performs the procedures, has special training in using an endoscope to examine the upper GI system, looking for inflammation (redness, irritation), bleeding, ulcers, or tumors.
