Draft: Delayed Gastric Emptying Clinical Practice Guide Consultation

The Agency for Clinical Innovation (ACI) with the support of lead clinicians in NSW and other key stakeholders have developed a standardised Nuclear Medicine protocol for Delayed Gastric Emptying.

There is wide variation in Nuclear Medicine scanning protocols for this procedure in NSW and in the international literature regarding the types of food labelled, radioisotopes used, normal ranges for gastric emptying and the reporting of results.

The Delayed Gastric Emptying Clinical Practice Guide has been developed by a multidisciplinary working group to reduce clinical variation between Nuclear Medicine departments and to improve standardisation of the gastric emptying technique across NSW.
