Gastric Emptying

What is Gastric Emptying?

For many people who complain of abdominal bloating or fullness after eating just a small amount of food or the same symptoms that last for a long period after a meal, the issue may be more than just a slow metabolism. Gastric Emptying is a Nuclear Medicine scan that diagnoses the cause of these symptoms by using a radioactive tracer to measure the speed with which food leaves the stomach.
