Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency Workup: Laboratory.

Pancreatic function can be measured directly by using endoscopy or the Dreiling tube method after stimulation with secretin or cholecystokinin (CCK). Direct pancreatic function testing is the most sensitive approach to assessment of exocrine pancreatic function and is usually performed at specialized centers. Various methods have been developed.

Pancreatic function testing - Chowdhury - 2003. Based on this principle, the use of 75 Se-methionine as a test of pancreatic function and as a method to visualize the pancreas by scintigraphy was introduced many years ago. 81, 82 75 Se-methionine is given as an intravenous bolus injection, followed by pancreatic stimulation. 82–84 The protein-bound radioactivity in the duodenal aspirates is used as an index of pancreatic exocrine function.

Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI) Tests - Identify EPI Direct measurements of pancreatic function such as the secretin or cholecystokinin stimulation test are the standard for assessment of the exocrine function of the pancreas. This test includes direct duodenal intubation, stimulation with secretin and cholecystokinin, and collection of pancreatic secretions for pH, bicarbonate, and enzyme analysis. These tests are invasive and usually only performed by gastroenterologists at specialized centers.

Lundh meal: a single non-invasive challenge. - SpringerLink Abstract. The determination of endocrine and exocrine pancreatic function in cystic fibrosis patients is clinically important. Recently, a new non-invasive test, in which pancreatic stimulation by a Lundh meal is followed by sequential serum lipase measurements, was found to be a good indicator of exocrine pancreatic status.
