Use of endoscopy to assist in placement of feeding tubes is discussed in Chapter 27. Informationprovided in this chapter will assist not only the clinician considering the initial purchase of an endoscope but also those practitioners already using them. For most general practitioners the major issues include choosing the right equipment and the cost of that equipment. Although rigid endoscopes are much cheaper than flexible endoscopes they are limited in their application, as indicated above. Second-hand human endoscopes are now available at reasonable prices, but care must be exercised to ensure the endoscope is not only suitable for veterinary purposes but of serviceable quality.
Lmage quality is based on machine-related issues (as in ail imaging), but Is more dependent on the skill and experience of the operator (ultrasonographer)than any other imaging modality. In the GI tract these limitations are compounded by variable amounts of gas, food and faeces. 12). This classical appearance allows evaiuation of wall layer definition and thickness. Wail thickening may be associated with chronic inflammatory or neoplastic conditions but thickening with loss of normal layers is more commonly associated with neoplasia.
Whethercaused by neoplasticmass,lucent foreign body, intussusception or dysfunctional aboral segment, the resultant effect is dilatation of the orad portion. 6:1 betweenthe maximum small intestinal diameter and the height of the body of the fifth lumbarvertebraat its narrowest point has been considered the upper limit of normal intestinal diameter. 3). The diagnosis of mechanical obstruction requires persistence of the dilatation and, therefore, repeat radiographs are almost always prudent. 4).
