Abstract

"Stomach cockade" can be readily imaged sonographically, so that it has also been possible to carry out studies of gastric motility or measurements of gastric emptying times of fluids. However, the results of measurements should be verified by reference methods using new investigation techniques. For this reason, we measured synchronously by sonography and scintigraphy the emptying of test fluids from the stomach in patients with diabetes mellitus and suspected gastroparesis. We found a correlation of the two methods of measurement, so that sonographic measurement can be regarded as confirmed by scintigraphy as a reference method.
