Examination of the gastrointestinal(GI) tract has traditionally been performed using endoscopy tools that allow a surgeon to see the inside of the lining of the digestive tract. Endoscopes are rigid or flexible tubes that use fibre-optics or cameras to visualise tissues in natural orifices. This can be an uncomfortable and very invasive procedure for the patient.
