Here is a gastroscopy video I’ve made that was recently published on www.oncolex.no.
The video shows a regular diagnostic gastroscopy. The patient has a lymphoma of the duodenum. The gastroscope is inserted through the mouth and the mucous membrane of the esophagus, stomach and duodenum are inspected for pathological changes. Air is pumped out through the scope to expand the tract and make visual inspection easier.
When the duodenal tumor is located, biopsy forceps are inserted through a canal in the gastroscope. Several biopsies are taken from all parts of the tumor and the tissue immediately surrounding it.
(Voice overs in Norwegian).
Having been hit by non-hodgkins, this was good to read. Thank you for this.
I’m working as an archive researcher in a production company of Montreal, Canada. I would be interested in using your gastroscopy video in one of our documentary.
Would you please contact me to see if this is something that we can do ?
