Anorectal Manometry — Anorectal manometry is a test that is performed to evaluate constipation, fecal incontinence, and other rectal disorders. It measures pressure, reflexes and sensation in the rectum. The procedure helps your doctor evaluate the cause and determine the correct treatment of fecal incontinence or constipation. Mcompass technology encompasses both an Anorectal Manometry test and a Rectal Tone, Sensation and Compliance test. It is safe, takes approximately 30 minutes and is usually pain-free. Complications are rare.
Fecal Elastase — This test measures the amount of elastase, an enzyme produced by the pancreas, in your stool. A deficiency of elastase could be an indicator of EPI. It may be harder to diagnose milder EPI using this test.
