Gastric emptying (liquids) sample dictation
History: The patient is  month old  with . Evaluate for gastric emptying.
Procedure: Dynamic images of the anterior and posterior abdomen were obtained for 90 minutes following the infusion/oral ingestion of  oz/cc formula/Enfamil/milk mixed with 0.35 mCi of Tc-99m sulfur colloid followed by  oz/cc of non-radioactive Enfamil/formula/milk via nasogastric/gastric tube. The tube was withdrawn after the infusion of formula/milk.
[Static images of the chest were obtained at 24 hours.]
Findings: Following the infusion/ingestion of Enfamil/milk as stated above, half of the gastric contents clear in  minutes (as estimated by exponential fit analysis), which is [prolonged/normal] (upper limits of normal half-time of clearance for liquids from the stomach is 30 minutes). The current T1/2 of  min. is [reduced/increased] in comparison to prior dated  (T1/2:  min.). Gastric to small bowel transit is first noted at  minutes.
There is no reflux of radiotracer activity into the region of the esophagus (a nasogastric tube was in place throughout the study).
There are  episodes of radiotracer activity in the region of the esophagus: the first at  minutes, the second episode at  minutes, and the third episode at  minutes. The episode with the highest degree of reflux demonstrates activity up to the region of the [naso/oropharynx].
Static images of the chest showed interval resolution of the radiotracer from the lung fields at 24 hours.
Impression: [Normal/Abormal] radionuclide gastric emptying scintigraphy.
Prolonged liquid gastric emptying, T-1/2 of  min. [longer/improved in comparison to T-1/2 of  min. on [date]).
No evidence of gastroesophageal reflux.
 episodes of gastroesophageal reflux.
Gastroesophageal reflux noted at  minutes.
No evidence of aspiration at 24 hours.
