Restech focuses on revolutionary, non-surgical solutions to help both accurately diagnose and treat acid reflux and other symptoms. The company began with the idea that pH-based reflux tests should measure more than just a patient’s esophagus, which could lead to better, more precise treatment options over time.
Reflux Diagnostics with Dx-pH
Restech Dx-pH is the first and only medical sensor that monitors real-time, continuous pH amounts with a sensor that can function anywhere in the aerodigestive tract (from the esophagus to the nasopharynx). The precision from such a diagnosis can help specialists further pinpoint the cause and origin point of each individual patient’s acid reflux. The procedure is safe, minimally invasive and performed in-office.
If a reflux test comes back negative, your specialist will review further options for diagnosis and treatment.
How It Works
- The pH probe is placed transnasally until the tip is just behind the uvula, high enough as to maintain maximum patient comfort. There is no need for anesthesia or any additional placement procedures.
- During the 24 hour study, the probe takes a pH reading every ½ second, while the patient inputs pertinent information such as symptoms, meals, and supine periods.
- Our DataView software program delivers the results in a simple, 1-page report format including a detailed graph, various statistics, and a proprietary RYAN Score.
- The procedure is billed under CPT 91034 and is covered by virtually all insurers.
