Endoscopy

Endoscopy (pronounced /ɛnˈdɒskəpi/) means looking inside and typically refers to looking inside the body for medical reasons using an endoscope (pronounced /ˈɛndəskoʊp/), an instrument used to examine the interior of a hollow organ or cavity of the body.

Endoscopy can also refer to using a borescope in technical situations where direct line of-sight observation is not feasible.
