To obtain an actual diagnosis of sphincter of Oddi dysfunction one would undergo sphincter of Oddi manometry. This is highly specialized and the biliary endoscopist that would be qualified to perform the diagnostics would typically be the same physician to consider botox injection. If you are up on sphincter of Oddi dysfunction, this would only apply to types II and III. Approximately 50-60% of type II would benefit and about 10-15% of type III patients. That is why the manometry is important.
