    "PTH-060 An assessment of quality of, and factors affecting, oesophagogastroduodenoscopy (OGD)

    The procedure is called OesophagoGastroDuodenoscopy (OGD) known more simply as gastroscopy or endoscopy. It involves looking at the upper part of the gut which includes the oesophagus (food pipe), stomach and the first part of your small bowel (duodenum) with a narrow flexible tube called a gastroscope."

    Oesophagogastroduodenoscpy (OGD) / Gastroscopy


    "An OGD procedure, or test, is short for OesophagoGastroDuodenoscopy which is quite a mouth full to pronounce!

    The other name for this procedure is an Upper GI endoscopy – as it examines the upper gastrointestinal (GI) tract. The procedure is carried out in the endoscopy department and patients are advised to stop eating for 6 hours before the test to make sure the stomach is empty.

    What does an OGD detect?

    An OGD procedure is performed to evaluate symptoms of persistent upper abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, difficulty swallowing or heartburn. It is an excellent method for finding the cause of bleeding from the upper gastrointestinal tract. It can be used to evaluate the oesophagus or stomach after major surgery."



    "Upper Gastrointestinal Endoscopy 

    What is an Upper GI Endoscopy (OGD)?

    Upper GI endoscopy, also called OGD (oesophago-gastro-duodenoscopy), 'gastroscopy' or simply an 'endoscopy', is a test which allows the doctor to look directly at the lining of the oesophagus (the gullet), the stomach and around the first bend of the small intestine - the duodenum. 


    "An upper endoscopy, also called an upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, is a procedure used to visually examine your upper digestive system."

    An upper endoscopy is a procedure a doctor uses to look at the inner lining of the upper digestive tract (the esophagus, stomach, and duodenum, which is the first part of the small intestine).

    This test is also sometimes called an esophagogastroduodenoscopy, or EGD.

    "OGD oesophagogastroduodenoscopy"


    "Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) is a diagnostic endoscopic procedure used to visualize the oropharynx, esophagus, stomach, and proximal duodenum."


    "Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD Test)

    An esophagogastoduodenoscopy, EGD for short, is a simple procedure to examine your upper GI tract. The test involves an endoscope, a lighted camera on the end of a tube, which is passed down your throat to visualize your esophagus, stomach and duodenum. It’s also called an upper endoscopy exam. 

    Working backward through the word, “scopy” means an examination with a visual instrument. A “scope” is that instrument (as in “telescope” or “microscope”). During an EGD test, medical examiners use something called an endoscope to examine the inside of your body. It’s a small, lighted camera on the end of a long, flexible tube.

    After you're given medication to make you comfortable, an endoscope is passed down your throat, through your esophagus (swallowing tube) and into your stomach. The camera sends images to a computer screen showing your esophagus, stomach and duodenum (the upper part of your small intestine).

    That’s where the rest of the word comes from. “Duodeno” means the duodenum, “gastro” means the stomach, and “esophago” means the esophagus.

    "What is an upper GI endoscopy?

    An upper GI endoscopy or EGD (esophagogastroduodenoscopy) is a procedure to diagnose and treat problems in your upper GI (gastrointestinal) tract.

    The upper GI tract includes your food pipe (esophagus), stomach, and the first part of your small intestine (the duodenum).
