Core Tip Scintigraphic studies offer a good screening tool for patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) who are suspected of laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) and lung aspiration. Such studies can predict the response to fundoplication. Although the application for this study was in a highly selected group who underwent fundoplication for LPR, the results have been equally valid in over 700 unselected patients with suspected GERD. The technique however requires careful attention to detail for acquisition parameters, particularly with the volume of liquid into which the tracer is introduced.
