An enteroscopy is a procedure that examines the lining of your small intestine. An enteroscope is a thin, flexible, light-emitting microscope. This test is used to detect disease and collect tissue samples for analysis if necessary (a biopsy). This procedure is usually performed under local anaesthesia. This will numb the area and relieve pain.
To help you relax, a sedative may be administered. An endoscope is a thin, flexible tube with a video camera and light at one end that is inserted into your small intestine through your mouth. By passing a small biopsy tool through the endoscope, a tissue sample (biopsy) can be obtained. After that, it will be tested.
