The EGG measures gastric myoelectrical activity through application of cutaneous electrodes. The technique to record an EGG must be performed with meticulous care since the signal produced by the slow waves in the stomach is tenuous and easily disturbed by movement or noise. It is advised to have a quiet room dedicated to electrogastrography. The study is performed in 3 stages: preprandial, prandial, and post-prandial. The slow wave activity is measured during each phase for accurate recording of gastric motility.
Journal of Medical Diagnostic Methods Open Access is one of the top online publishing journals for research from the field of EGG. The open access articles published in this scholarly journal are reviewed by at least two reviewers of the associated fields. The journal publishes original research articles, reviews, case reports, short communications, etc and emphasizes theoretical and experimental work. To ensure high quality articles, both editors and reviewers actively participate in the peer review process and help in completing the review process within 21 days. As an important educational platform the journal provides scientists and researchers access to the newest trends and research outlooks. Please browse through the list of peer-reviewed journals to find the scientific publication of your interest.
