Esophageal manometry and pH Metry

Esophageal motility or manometry is used to evaluate patients with symptoms of difficulty swallowing solid and liquid foods (or both), chest pain that is not of cardiac origin, and occasionally heartburn. The test measures the pressures and the pattern of muscle contractions (motility) in the esophagus.

High resolution manometry (HRM) "figure below " is the latest and most sophisticated version of esophageal manometry. It allows for the detection of most complex esophageal motility disorders.
