Gastro-intestinal (GI) and GI motility disorders can have a serious impact on a patient’s daily life.
The symptoms of gastric reflux, chronic constipation and gastroparesis (slow stomach emptying) can be easily confused with the symptoms of functional dyspepsia (indigestion) and irritable bowel syndrome.
Due to this symptom overlap, a thorough diagnostic evaluation is important. This evaluation may include motility monitoring tests such as manometry or transit time measurement.
This measurement can be done using innovative technologies for both manometry testing and motility evaluation produced by Given Imaging, thus providing the most comprehensive range of convenient and effective tools to assess the function of the GI tract.
