As part of the School of Science and Technology Chemistry and Forensic Science Colloquium, Dr Kathryn Murray, University of Nottingham presents: An inside view of FODMAPs, fibre and functional bowel disorders.

Abstract

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a well-known technique widely used as a diagnostic tool. Despite its first application to the study of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract being reported some 30 years ago, very few have exploited the non-invasive insights into GI physiology that MRI offers. The GI MRI group at the University of Nottingham has been investigating MRI biomarkers of GI function and fluid distribution in health and disease. These biomarkers include the water content of the small and large bowel, whole gut transit time and relaxation times of colonic contents. This talk will provide an overview of our applications of MRI to the study of functional bowel disorders, including changes in MRI biomarkers after consumption of highly fermentable carbohydrates (FODMAPs) such as fructose.

This seminar is hosted by Dr Quentin Hanley.

All welcome.
