Monitoring of stomach dyspepsia. False-colour computer enhanced gamma scan of the human stomach with dyspepsia (indigestion) during tests to study its rate of emptying. Here, after some hours after swallowing a radioactive fluid, the stomach (yellow, above centre) no longer contains radio- active fluid; this fluid has passed through into the intestine (at lower centre), concentrated in red areas. This is the last image in a series of images (see: M140/120 and M140/121). Dyspepsia or indigestion is a common term for a variety of eating and digestive disorders. It may be caused by incorrect diet, peptic ulcer, stress or disease and can be accompanied by nausea and vomiting.
