Welcome to ACT Endoscopy
ACT Endoscopy is a state of the art, purpose built facility, designed to cater to the growing endoscopic needs of the Australian Capital Territory and the surrounding area of New South Wales. It is located in the heart of Canberra within the newly built Equinox complex on Kent street, Deakin near John James Hospital. The centre was officially opened by the chief minister in May 2012. Services offered include gastroscopy (upper gastrointestinal endoscopy) and colonoscopy (lower gastrointestinal endoscopy).
A Colonoscopy is an examination of the colon (large intestine) using a long, thin, flexible tube with a camera called a colonoscope.
A gastroscopy is an examination of the upper digestive tract (the oesophagus, the stomach and duodenum) using a long, thin, flexible tube with a camera called a gastroscope.
