Spiral endoscopy at Methodist Charlton Medical Center in Dallas
What is spiral endoscopy?
Spiral endoscopy (small bowel endoscopy) helps diagnose and treat patients with obscure bleeding in the small intestine. These patients are often anemic and may require transfusions or hospitalization.
Spiral endoscopy uses a specialized tube with a spiral overlay that gently rotates as it quickly advances through the small intestine. With spiral endoscopy, physicians can see areas previously out of reach in less than half the time needed by other procedures.
Spiral endoscopy offers the patient
- Faster treatment
