It means inserting a tube from anus with a minute camera one side and probably a pump on the another, used to observe the insides.

Hello

A rectal erythema usually means the sides of the colon walls are red and inflamed, can be due to polyps, ulcers, etc. I would ask your doctor what was found and the meaning of it.
