Description

Manometry has long been the standard to measure colorectal activity, but it’s a lengthy and invasive test.

Doctors at Children’s Mercy Kansas City wanted to know if there was a better, non-invasive way to monitor colonic activity. The search for an answer led to a promising innovation. Along with a scientific partner, John Rosen, MD, developed a device that monitors colorectal activity using electrical bio-impedance with electrodes on the skin.

Join Dr. John Rosen with the Division of Gastroenterology at Children’s Mercy Kansas City, as he introduces us to colonic monitoring, his pre-clinical findings presented at a major gastroenterology conference in 2017, and the potential the new device holds to make colorectal activity detection more accessible to patients.
