Abstract

Patient motion during scintigraphic gastric emptying studies can result in the false diagnosis of gastroesophageal reflux or of accelerated gastric emptying. A simple means of detecting patient motion, by generating a time-activity curve from a region of interest drawn about a Tc-99m marker, is described.
