Cultivo de tejido gástrico

Se introduce un tubo flexible de fibra óptica a través de la boca y del esófago hasta llegar al estómago. El tubo permite que el médico observe varias partes y tome una biopsia (muestra). Posteriormente, se lleva la muestra al laboratorio para ser examinada. El procedimiento se utiliza para determinar la causa de un sangrado y para diagnosticar tumores, úlceras, enfermedades inflamatorias y anomalías estructurales del estómago.Cultivo de tejido gástrico
