How SITZMARKS® Works
SITZMARKS® is used by your health care provider to diagnose many gastrointestinal (GI) conditions, such as:
- Bowel Obstruction
- Colonic Inertia
- Diverticular Disease
- Functional Outlet Obstruction
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
Your health care provider will give you SITZMARKS® to be taken with a large glass of water. It passes naturally through the digestive tract. The capsule dissolves, releasing the rings. This is not a harmful test – the ingredients in the capsule are expelled naturally.
The SITZMARKS® capsule contains 24 radiopaque rings – which are visible via the X-ray procedure. Your health care provider will schedule X-ray appointments as required. Your health care provider will count the number of rings present in your digestive tract after each X-ray and will discuss potential treatment options.
