Endoscopy / Microscopy
Exploration by endoscopy makes it possible to visualize the interior of the organs, a natural conduit or a cavity. The examination is carried out using a rigid or more frequently flexible tube, provided with optical fibers and with a light source. Coupled with a video camera, it retransmits on screen the images collected during its journey through the body. The examination is carried out either in a hospital environment or in a specialized office. Microscopy refers to the examination of objects or details of objects barely perceptible or invisible to the naked eye. Microscopy then gradually established itself as an essential observation technique to access the properties of matter, inanimate or living.
