Anorectal manometry is a test that measures how well the rectum and anal sphincters work together to eliminate stool (feces).
Anorectal manometry might be recommended to you if you have one of the following health problems:
Fecal incontinence (soiling)
Tightness of the sphincter muscles during a bowel movement can contribute to constipation, while weakness in the sphincter muscles can lead to fecal incontinence.6 Anorectal manometry can tell whether these muscles are working as they should.
The test itself is not painful. It involves the insertion of a small, flexible probe into your rectum while you are lying on a table.
Anorectal manometry is a technique used to measure contractility in the anus and rectum
