Gastric accommodation and gastric tone are key measure in functional diseases such as gastroparesis, dyspepsia, and even reflux. Whilst gastric accommodation has been assessed using conventional MRI such measures will have been be perturbed by the subject lying supine. Gastric tone is either assessed using a barostat or pressure sensors. This work investigate the gastric response to a meal in the upright position with the aim of analysing the data to study accommodation and markers of tone in future.
