This is a study to evaluate the small intestine. It can be performed on its own or after an upper gastrointestinal series. Barium is taken orally, and then a series of X-rays are taken as barium flows from the stomach through the small intestine, to the colon.
This is a study of the oesophagus, stomach and duodenum. After drinking barium, the radiol-ogist observes a fluoroscope while placing the patient in a variety of positions. Films are ob-tained during and after fluoroscopy.
