Gastrointestinal function tests

All relevant gastroenterological tests are carried out in our functional laboratory:

  • Esophageal manometry (high-resolution manometry including impedance determination):

    A method of oesophageal dysfunction diagnostic in which the intraluminal esophageal pressure, e.g. in the case of suspicion of relaxation of the musculature, is measured.

  • Intraday Esophageal pH Metry:

    The long-term esophageal pH metry detects the reflux of gastric acid in the esophagus and thus provides direct and quantitative evidence of gastroesophageal reflux. The long-term pH-metry of the stomach, on the other hand, directly and quantitatively measures the acid production in the stomach.

  • H2 breath tests (lactose, lactulose, fructose, glucose H2 breath tests):

    These clinical tests are used to determine milk sugar intolerance, the intolerance of other sugars or to detect bacterial bad settlement in the small intestine.
