Gastroenterology is the field of medicine responsible for diagnosing and treating digestive system disorders. Gastroenterologists perform several types of tests to diagnose you and plan your treatment. Some of these tests require preparation, so follow all instructions carefully.
What is a Gastroenterology Test?
A gastroenterology test is a method specialists use to determine what is happening in your digestive system. These tests are vital for developing an effective treatment plan. Some gastroenterology tests, like X-rays, are non-invasive, while others use a scope to view the inside of your upper or lower digestive tract. Your gastroenterologist will explain any tests in detail while discussing your treatment plan.
