Core tip: Proximal gastric area and volume measured respectively by 2- and 3-dimensional ultrasound were significantly smaller in patients with functional dyspepsia compared to those of healthy controls. Hence, they could be used to assess accommodation impairment, but further prospective studies are needed to establish their clinical role in diagnosis of functional dyspepsia.
