Manometry Report Format

Gastrointestinal (GI) manometry has evolved prodigiously during the last decade. The introduction of high-resolution manometry (HRM) has been a true innovation in the field of gastrointestinal physiology. HRM has greatly simplified the job of acquisition, analysis and interpretation of motility related data. As with conventional manometry, there is a need for minimum standards for reporting in the case of HRM as well. Standardized reporting formats for GI manometry would be useful for (a) streamlining day-to-day functioning in GI physiology laboratories; (b) providing a standard template for collection, analysis, and publication of data from across the globe; and (c) providing benchmark resources to young gastroenterologists planning to set up a new manometry laboratory. This chapter provides a description of standard reporting formats for esophageal, antroduodenal, and anorectal manometry.
