Tests & Screenings

Finding the source of your ​digestive disorder is one of the first steps in proper treatment. At ​Saint Vincent Hospital, we offer a wide range of tests and screenings at our hospital.

Bravo Probe

This test takes two days and measures pH levels in the esophagus. By attaching a small capsule to the esophagus during an endoscopy, this test can be used to diagnose acid reflux.

Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS)

This type of ultrasound allows doctors to examine and obtain images of the esophagus, stomach lining and gastrointestinal tract for signs of inflammation and disease. A device is passed through the mouth or anus to create visual images of the upper or lower digestive tract.

ERCP

ERCP is an acronym for Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography. This screening technique combines endoscopy and fluoroscopy (continuous X-ray imaging) to diagnose and treat certain conditions of the liver and pancreas.

Small Bowel Capsule Endoscopy

This procedure is an examination of the middle portion of the digestive tract, including the small intestine. The patient swallows a small, pill-sized capsule that contains a camera. As the camera makes its way through the body, doctors are able to view images of the small intestine.
