What is this fiberscope’s correct name? (Upper endoscopy,endoscope or gastroscope)
I just want to know when doctor use a fiberscope to examine stomach, what is this scope correct name?
I did it last year and I got a report said that I did “ upper endoscopy” ,
I also saw that some patients called it “ endoscope”
But recently I read a material said,
Endoscopes have been developed for many parts of the body. Each has its own name,depending on the part of the body it is intended to investigate, such as,
gastroscope—to examine the stomach.
So, I want to make sure what I need to call it
