Tests & Screenings

Detecting the source of your digestive disorder is the first step in designing a treatment plan for you. At Placentia-Linda Hospital, we offer a range of screenings and tests to help reach that diagnosis. Among them are:

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.

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.
