A colonoscopy is the visual examination of the large intestine (colon) using a flexible fiberoptic or video endoscope. The colon begins in the right-lower abdomen and then moves up and around the abdomen, ending in the rectum. The colon is 5 to 6 feet long and has a number of functions including withdrawing water from the liquid stool that enters it so that a solid stool is produced.

Upper GI Endoscopy

Upper GI endoscopy, referred to as an " EGD ", is a visual examination of the upper intestinal tract using a flexible fiberoptic or video endoscope. The upper intestinal tract starts with the mouth, and continues with the esophagus (which carries food to the stomach). The stomach secretes a potent acid and churns the food into small particles. The food then enters the duodenum, or small bowel, where bile from the liver and digestive juices from the pancreas mix with it to help the digestive process.
