Colonic Manometry

To assess the function of the large intestine (or ‘colon’), a colonic manometry test can directly record the pressure waves. This is done by placing a thin plastic tube or probe with pressure sensors through the rectum and into the colon during a colonoscopy by your gastroenterologist or sometimes by a radiologist, who guides it in using fluoroscopy or video X-ray study.
