Abstract

Summary: Diagnostic Laparoscopy is an established investigative procedure. Its advantage in establishing accurate diagnosis has been proven over time. The duration is short, it provides direct visualization of the lesion and it avoids exposure to irradiation. It is also far cheaper to set up compared to CT scan and MRI. It may therefore be more beneficial for Health Institutions in Nigeria to set up facilities for this procedure and encourage its use. Key words: Diagnostic Laparoscopy, Laparoscopic Surgery
