PURPOSE To evaluate a magnetic resonance (MR) imaging method for simultaneous assessment of gastric emptying and motility. MATERIALS AND METHODS Gastric emptying and motility were measured in nine volunteers after ingestion of a liquid meal. A specially designed MR imaging protocol was used that allowed simultaneous assessment of gastric emptying (spatial resolution, 1.5 mm; corrected for gastric secretion volume) and gastric motility (temporal resolution, 1.2 seconds; spatial resolution, 3.1… CONTINUE READING
