Types of ScopesArthroscopes – Used in arthroscopy. Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure on a joint in which an examination and treatment of damage is performed using an arthroscope. The advantage over traditional open surgery is that the joints does not have to be opened up fully. The arthroscopes are smaller than traditional instruments.

Cystoscopy is done to determine the cause of blood in the urine, investigate repeated urinary tract infections, evaluating blockages in the urethra and removing foreign objects.
