Multichannel Intraluminal Impedance (MII) Testing for Non-Acidic Reflux

Image by Wikipedia
As far as we know, Virginia Hospital Center's Heartburn Center in Arlington, VA and now Fauquier Hospital are the only places in Northern Virginia that offers 24 hour Multichannel Intraluminal Impedance (MII) testing to look for non-acidic reflux. Oftentimes, this test is combined with pH probe testing and manometry to measure the more traditional acid reflux as well as esophageal motility. MII testing is extremely important to evaluate those patients with persistent dry cough, mucus in throat, sensation of throat swelling, etc when all other reflux measurements/testing have come back normal.
