Abstract [en]

Although more than 30 years have passed since the introduction of scintigraphic testing of gastric emptying there has been no well-defined standard. Eight Swedish hospitals have established a nationally standardized method for scintigraphic testing of gastric emptying of solids. 160 healthy subjects participated. The meal consisted of a 99mTc-labeled omelet (1300 kJ) and 150 ml unlabeled soft drink (290 kJ). There were no differences in calculated variables between the centers. Premenopausal women showed slower emptying than postmenopausals and men of any age, making separate reference values for younger women necessary.
