Abstract

The aim of the study is to evaluate and further develop a non-invasive method for the measurement of intragastric movements. Ferrimagnetic particles (γ-Fe2O3) are ingested within a standard test meal (pancakes), and given a permanent magnetisation by an applied homogeneous magnetic field. Magnetic measurements are performed outside the stomach, using… (More)
