Radionuclide measurement of esophageal transit has been proposed as a screening test for esophageal motor dysfunction. In this study we evaluated the radionuclide esophageal transit test in 49 consecutive patients undergoing esophageal manometry for esophageal motor disorders. Esophageal transit was assessed using a 10-ml water bolus labeled with 250 μCi technetium-99m sulfur colloid. In preliminary studies in 14 healthy controls, mean transit time was 9.6±2.1 (SD) sec. Prolonged transit (>15… CONTINUE READING
