For years, some patients' unexplained heartburn, nausea, vomiting, dysphagia, constipation or abdominal pain have been difficult to accurately diagnose and treat.

But in the last decade, Temple physicians have played a vital part in measuring gastrointestinal myoelec.

In addition to routine testing, such as esophageal manometry with provocative testing and anal manometry with biofeedback, we also perform other leading-edge techniques. We're one of the few centers offering antroduodenal motility, impedance tomography, and electrogastrography. At Temple, you'll also find:

  • 24-hour and 48-hour (BRAVO) monitoring of esophageal and oropharyngeal acidity, 24-hour monitoring of esophageal motility, and 24-hour monitoring of esophageal bile reflux

  • Electrogastrography, antroduodenal motility, and scintigraphic techniques can be performed simultaneously to evaluate esophageal transit, gastroesophageal reflux, gastric emptying, small intestinal transit and colonic transit in complex patients

  • Sphincter of Oddi manometry

  • Colonic transit testing for patients with chronic constipation and irritable bowel syndrome
