The Endoscopy Department at Cartersville Medical Center:
The endoscopy unit is where medical procedures are performed with endoscopes, which are cameras used to visualize structures within the body, such as the digestive tract and genitourinary system. Endoscopy can also help identify inflammation, ulcers, and tumors. Upper endoscopy is more accurate than X-rays for detecting abnormal growths such as cancer and for examining the inside of the upper digestive system. In addition, abnormalities can be treated through the endoscope. * * Cartersville Medical Center is currently looking for a *Registered Nurse (RN) – Endoscopy - FT days *
