  • A barium swallow or barium meal test: is a test to assess your swallowing ability and look for any blockages or abnormalities in your esophagus.
  • Manometry: Manometry is used to assess how well the ring of muscle at the end of your esophagus is working, by measuring the pressure in your esophagus
  • 24-hour pH monitoring: The acidity level is measured over 24 hours, using a thin tube containing a sensor that's passed up your nose and down your esophagus. This is usually connected to a recording device worn on your waist.
