Abdomen and Pelvis CT Scan with Contrast

CT of the abdomen and pelvis is a special type of imaging performed with intravenous contrast material after the ingestion of oral barium.

Bravo pH Monitor

If you suffer from acid reflux, heartburn, chest pain and other symptoms of GERD (gastrointestinal reflux disorder), your doctor may suggest that you have a pH test to determine the degree of acidity or alkalinity of your esophagus.

Capsule Endoscopy

Capsule endoscopy is a procedure that allows your health care provider to see the inside lining of the middle part of the GI tract, including portions of the small intestine. This procedure is chosen over an upper endoscopy or colonoscopy because the entire small intestine cannot be visualized by those procedures.

Colonoscopy

​A colonoscopy is a visual examination of the entire large intestine, also known as the colon. This exam is used to explore possible causes of abdominal pain, rectal bleeding, chronic constipation, chronic diarrhea and other intestinal problems. A colonoscopy is also used as a method of screening for colon cancer.

Computed Tomography Enterography

CT enterography is a special type of computed tomography (CT) imaging performed with intravenous contrast material after the patient ingests thin barium.

Endoscopic Ultrasound

Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) is an innovative technology that combines endoscopy and ultrasound to study detailed images of the body’s internal organs. EUS is helpful because it allows a specially trained endoscopist to view entire gastrointestinal tract, including the esophagus, stomach, small and large intestine and rectum.

Esophageal Dilation

Esophageal dilation provides relief from difficulty swallowing, or dysphagia, by carefully dilating or stretching the wall of the esophagus to allow food to pass.

Esophageal Manometry

Esophageal manometry is a test that measures the pressure inside the lower part of the esophagus. The area of specialized muscle located at the bottom of the esophagus is called the lower esophageal sphincter (LES).

Flexible Sigmoidoscopy

A sigmoidoscopy is an internal exam of the lower part of the large intestine (colon) using a short, thin, flexible lighted tube.

Hemorrhoid Banding

If your hemorrhoids are highly symptomatic (bleeding), your doctor may recommend hemorrhoid banding. Hemorrhoid banding is a non-surgical and non-invasive, in-office procedure.

Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)

Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) is a minimally invasive procedure treating dysplastic (precancerous) Barrett's esophagus.

Upper Endoscopy

An upper endoscopy, also known as esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD), is a procedure used to determine the cause of gastrointestinal disorders and symptoms including heartburn, the presence of hiatal hernias, the cause of abdominal pain, unexplained anemia, and the cause of swallowing difficulties, upper GI bleeding, and the presence of tumors or ulcers.

Virtual Colonoscopy

A virtual colonoscopy uses imaging technology known as computerized tomography (CT) to produce hundreds of cross-sectional images of the entire abdomen and its organs.
