Tests & Screenings

Detecting the source of your digestive disorder is one of the first steps in proper treatment. At Saint Francis Hospital-Memphis, we offer a wide range of tests and screenings at our fully equipped imaging centers. See below for common diagnostic tests and screenings.

Bravo Probe

This type of test 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; this test is used to diagnose reflux.

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

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 your 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.
