ENDOSCOPY (ENT)

ENDOSCOPY (ENT)


Endoscopy Services at IIMT Lifeline Hospital are designed to minimize patient fears, pain and discomfort. Patients are under a light sedation during testing, which involves inserting a small scope into the body. We also use state-of-the-art technologies to produce improved images, leading to more accurate diagnoses.

Endoscopy is a procedure to look at the nasal and sinus passages. It’s done with an endoscope. This is a thin, flexible tube with a tiny camera and a light. An ear, nose, and throat doctor (otolaryngologist) will often do this procedure in his or her office.

During the procedure, the healthcare provider inserts the endoscope into your nose. He or she guides it through your nasal and sinus passages. Images of the area can be seen through the endoscope. This can aid in the diagnosis and treatment of health conditions. In some cases, small tools may be used to take tiny samples of tissue or do other tasks.
