Please note that Internet Explorer version 8. As more has been learned about the optimal methodology, some imaging centers have changed their protocols, but many centers have been reluctant to perform a 4-h procedure because reimbursement is not commensurate with the time and effort needed.
In an investigation of patients, 34 studies were abnormal at 2 h.
The following organizations provided support for the meetings, but did not provide input into the development of the manuscript: J Auton Nerv Syst Current Issue September45 3. Many of these patients have symptoms indistinguishable from those of gastroparesis.
De Ponti F Pharmacology of serotonin: The consensus participants, therefore, identified the following areas where more information is needed. Postprandial glucose is not usually measured to determine if hyperglycemia develops postprandially during the GE test; postprandial hyperglycemia could prolong GE. A graph of the values plotted as a function of time may also be included in the report as a visual summary of the study results. Vomiting a portion of the ingested meal after the initial baseline image may lead to lower subsequent estimated gastric retention values, so that GE appears faster than it was.

Gastroenterology ; One-minute anterior and 1-min posterior timed images are acquired. Lack of effects of a 5-hydroxytryptamine-3 antagonist ondansetron on gastric emptying in patients with gastric stasis syndrome.
Anticholinergic antispasmodic agents such as Bentyl, Donnatal, Levsin, and Robinul are usually stopped for 2 days prior to the test. To date, however, there are only limited data published on this approach 67 Eur J Cancer These authors defined the upper limits of gastric retention 95th percentile of the men and women at each of three time points: Imaging at only four time points can actually simplify scheduling and permit more efficient use of imaging equipment.
Imaging was performed at 0, 0. In addition, this document does not answer all the questions raised during these discussions. More images can be obtained, if desired. Prevalence of delayed gastric emptying in diabetic patients and relationship to dyspeptic symptoms:
