An OGD (oesophago-gastroduodenoscopy, also known as a ‘gastroscopy’) is a minimally invasive procedure that is performed specifically to examine the inside lining of the oesophagus (food pipe), the stomach and the first part of the small intestine (duodenum). A narrow, flexible, telescopic camera, called a gastroscope, is passed through the upper digestive system.
