Gastric contractions are governed by a bioelectrical event known as slow waves. High-resolution electrical mapping has recently been applied to study complex gastric slow wave spatiotemporal propagations in detail. As these methods are translated to clinical and experimental applications, it is evident that efficient and automated methods are a necessity for analysis. Despite automated methods to detect slow wave events, manual review and correction remains necessary due to the presence of experimental noise in the recordings...
