Heartburn and reflux diagnostic services

Our team of gastroenterologists perform a range of diagnostic tests to identify the severity of your heartburn and reflux symptoms and their effects on your body. Testing options may include:

  • 24-hour esophageal pH monitoring — This test measures the amount of acid flowing into the esophagus over a 24-hour time period.
  • Abdominal ultrasound — This test uses ultrasound imaging to examine the organs in the abdomen and their structures.
  • Esophageal motility study — This test evaluates the function of the esophagus, including how well the muscles within the esophagus are working.
  • Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) — This test uses an endoscope to examine the lining of the upper GI tract.
  • Gastric emptying study — This test evaluates the amount of time it takes for an ingested meal to move through the stomach.
  • Upper gastrointestinal (GI) series — This test uses a contrast agent such as barium to visualize the upper GI tract (esophagus, stomach and duodenum).

After diagnostic testing, your doctor will identify the best treatment option for you. This can range from medications and lifestyle changes to surgery.

If you need access to other types of gastroenterological care services, we make it convenient through our HCA Florida Healthcare family of hospitals across the state.
