Diagnosis of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract

Physical examination methods
Of course, the first step towards establishing a diagnosis is a consultation with a specialist. It is necessary to answer in detail all the questions of a gastroenterologist or a therapist who, according to your complaints, will be able to compile a general picture of the disease. Next, the specialist proceeds to a more detailed examination, which includes methods such as palpation, auscultation, percussion. Below we will look at some of these methods of examination in more detail:

This is a special technology for probing the patient's abdomen, performed by the doctor's fingers without the use of additional instruments. Scientists have long identified features characteristic of gastrointestinal diseases that can be detected by palpation. So, for example, with the help of palpation, a specialist can determine the foci of localization of pain, the degree of tension in the abdominal wall and other changes in the gastrointestinal tract.

a diagnostic method in which a specialist listens to sounds emanating from the digestive tract using a stethophonendoscope. In some cases, auscultation can also be performed by applying the ear to the patient's abdomen.

This is a method of studying the organs of the gastrointestinal tract, which is carried out in order to determine the boundaries of their location. As a rule, percussion is performed simultaneously with palpation for the most accurate diagnosis. Percussion is used primarily to examine the liver and spleen.

The main purpose of probing is to access gastric juice, which reflects all the necessary indicators of the state of the gastrointestinal tract. Violation of the content of hydrochloric acid in gastric juice causes malfunctions in digestion and becomes the cause of certain diseases.
Endoscopy is another method of examining the gastrointestinal tract, which consists in the introduction of optical instruments into the lumen of the gastrointestinal tract. As a rule, endoscopy is the most effective technology for diagnosing diseases of the small or large intestine.

The range of methods for diagnosing diseases of the gastrointestinal tract is constantly updated with new technologies, one of which is sigmoidoscopy. This method allows you to examine the rectal mucosa using a special optical instrument.

One way or another, today there is a wide variety of methods for diagnosing diseases of the digestive system, which allow you to accurately determine the problem and prescribe effective treatment. Modern technologies make these techniques painless for the patient and indispensable for the specialist.
