Abstract

OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this article is to describe the clinical utility of state-of-the-art gastrointestinal transit scintigraphy, including the standardized esophageal transit, solid and liquid gastric emptying, small-bowel transit, colon transit, and whole-gut transit scintigraphy, with an emphasis on procedure performance. CONCLUSION. Radionuclide gastrointestinal motility studies are noninvasive, quantitative, and physiologic diagnostic tools for evaluating patients with gastrointestinal complaints.
