In brief: Endoscopy

Though there are features seen in a ct scan and barium swallow which are suggestive of esophagitis, the only (and best way) to definitively make the diagnosis is with an endoscopy.

In brief: History and tests

Proper history taking can lead the doctor to make the diagnosis.
A diagnostic test EGD( Esophagogastroduodenoscopy) can also be done to make the diagnosis
