Single and Multichannel Magnetic Field Measurements of Gastrointestinal Activity in the Pre- and Post-Prandial States
Current techniques for assessing gastrointestinal activity are highly invasive. These techniques such as radiology, scintigraphy and endoscopy yield results that are qualitative and non-specific. A method of evaluating GI function that is both non-invasive and quantitative is needed.
