About Endoscopy and Cystoscopy

Endoscopy is a procedure used in medicine to look inside the body. The procedure uses an endoscope (pictured here) to examine the interior of a hollow organ or cavity of the body. When performed by doctors to examine the lining of the bladder and the tube that carries urine out of the body (urethra), the procedure is called a cystoscopy. A hollow tube (cystoscope) equipped with a lens is inserted into the urethra and slowly advanced into the bladder where suspicious masses are viewed via images on a surgical monitor, diagnosed and removed.
