A gastric emptying scan is a test that will help the doctor find out how well your child's stomach is working.

Pictures are taken after your child eats and / or drinks a specially prepared meal. In that meal is a flavorless medicine that lets our cameras see your child’s stomach.

Gastric emptying scans can be performed with several different foods that will fit with your child’s diet. Foods used for gastric emptying scans include: Egg Beaters (egg substitute), Ensure Plus (protein drink), oatmeal, your child’s formula (including breast milk or cow’s milk), and water or juice.
