Diagnosing lower GIT motility with Medifactia Transit-Pellets™ stands out for its simplicity. The patient takes a fixed dose of Transit-Pellets™ radiopaque markers for six days. On the seventh day, a single abdominal X-ray is taken. The average oro-anal transit time (OATT, mouth to anus) is then calculated depending on the number and location of retained markers.
The method includes the Transit-Pellets™ GI Monitoring System web application. This tool can be used in real-time using any internet-connected device and is available to all healthcare professional user accounts. Using the GI monitoring system, the user can follow the wizard step by step and enter the number and location of markers according to their appearance on the patient’s X-ray image.
In accordance with the Transit-Pellets method™, the system then automatically calculates the total and segmental transit time through the patient’s intestine. A report displayed after each test presents the patient’s colon test results in both graphical and report format and compared to authorized Transit-Pellets method™ reference values.
