Abstract
ABSTRACT
The article presents information on abstracts related to gastrointestinal physiology. An abstract focuses on the effects of posture on gastric emptying. Gastric emptying proceeds despite changes in body position. The effect of position on the rote of gastric emptying and the physiological mechanisms that drive gastric emptying are poorly understood. Specifically it is unclear whether tonic or peristaltic contraction drives gastric emptying. MRI is a non-invasive investigation with which these processes can be studied, providing quantitative assessment of multiple aspects of gastrointestinal structure and function.
