Junction biopsy

blog

If a patient suffers from something like chronic inflammation of the gastroesophageal junction, then conducting a biopsy is the first step. A biopsy is taken endoscopically under the effect of sedation with the help of an instrument known as an endoscope. An endoscope is attached to the tube along with a light and camera and it takes a small piece of tissue to examine it further later.
