Abstract
Nowadays computers successfully analyze medical data giving results used for futher treatment. Every year we develop new technology which gives us better and more precise diagnose. We chose esophageal manometry (EFT) which has been considered as a "gold standard" test for the evaluation of esophageal motility. EFT allows physicians to get informations about esophageal peristalsis, amplitude and duration of the esophageal contraction and liquid/viscous bolus transit time from mouth through stomach. We examined 80 patients during 2008 year. Everybody got EFT, endoscopy and X-Ray examination. It was important to ask about symptoms which we correlate and connect with data from EFT. We tried to find a good algorithm for this job in order to do a simple and helpful tool for physician to make right diagnose. Connection between data and symptoms seems to be right and clear, but finding a good algorithm for given data is the main problem.
