Oesophageal Manometry 

A test that shows whether your esophagus is working properly and to measure the function of the lower esophageal sphincter (the valve that prevents reflux, or backward flow, of gastric acid into the esophagus). The test will tell the doctor if esophagus is able to move food to your stomach normally.
