Tests & Screenings
Detecting the source of your digestive disorder is the first step in designing a treatment plan for you. At San Ramon Regional Medical Center, we offer a wide range of tests and screenings to help reach that diagnosis. Among them are:
This test is used to diagnose reflux. It lasts for two days and is performed on the esophagus. Ph levels are measured in the esophagus by attaching a small capsule to the esophagus during an endoscopy.
Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)
This type of ultrasound allows doctors to examine the esophagus, stomach lining and gastrointestinal tract for signs of inflammation and disease. A device will be passed through the mouth or anus to create visual images.
ERCP is Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography. This technique combines endoscopy and fluoroscopy to diagnose and treat certain conditions of the liver and pancreas.
Small bowel capsule endoscopy
The procedure is an examination of the middle portion of the digestive tract — including the small intestine. A small, pill-sized capsule that contains a camera is given to a patient to swallow. Doctors are then able to view pictures of the small intestine as the camera makes its way through the body.
