Probably not...: "Colonic manometry" is typically limited to the anorectal region. Anorectal manometry is a test to evaluate bowel function in those with constipation or stool leakage. It is used to: 1) Check the strength of the anal sphincter muscles 2) Check the ability to sense stool within the rectum 3) Check the coordination between rectal and anal muscles Total colon manometry is still experimental
