Fecal Calprotectin Test

Fecal calprotectin is a substance that will be excessively re-leased into the intestines when there is inflammation. The amount of fecal calprotectin measured is proportional to the in-flammation, it helps assess the inflammation and the need to proceed to endoscopy.

 

 


High resolution esophageal impedance manometry (HRIM)

pressure

 

High resolution esophageal impedance manometry (HRIM) is indicated for suspected esophageal motility disorder (e.g. Achalasia), dysphagia, pre-operative assessment of anti-reflux surgery, non-cardiac chest pain.


HRIM studies the function of lower esophageal sphincter (LES) and esophageal motility. Local anesthetic will be given to patient and a catheter of 3mm diameter will be intubated through the patient’s nostril into the esophagus. After 10 minutes of resting, a sequence of swallowing tests (salt water or sometimes solid food) will be performed to access the motility of esophagus.
