Gastroscopy

Gastroscopy

This test is used to study and diagnose GI disorders such as dyspepsia, gastroesophageal reflux, peptic ulcer, Helicobacter Pylori infections, esophagitis, and irritable bowel syndrome, which are common conditions that also carry high health care costs. Despite being very common, these are highly underestimated and their actual incidence and prevalence is difficult to measure, although recent data suggests an increase in their frequency. Many of these conditions, if not adequately treated, can cause severe complications, potentially life-threatening.
