Barium Studies :

Radiographic tests to help diagnose diseases of the gastrointestinal tract.Like ulcers stricture osphrgaous, gastritis or intestinal lsion.

  • Barium swallows

Barium swallows :-

A barium swallow is a test that may be used to determine the cause of painful swallowing, difficulty with swallowing, abdominal pain, bloodstained vomit, or unexplained weight loss.

Barium sulfate is a metallic compound that shows up on x-ray and is used to help see abnormalities in the esophagus and stomach. When taking the test, you drink a preparation containing this solution. The x-rays pass through your digestive system.

These problems can be detected with a barium swallow:

  • Narrowing or irritation of the esophagus (the muscular tube between the back of the throat and the stomach)
  • Disorders of swallowing
  • Hiatal hernia (an internal defect that causes the stomach to slide partially into the chest)
  • Abnormally enlarged veins in the esophagus that cause bleeding
  • Ulcers
  • Tumors
  • Polyps (growths that are usually not cancerous, but could be precancerous)

Barium Follow Through

Indications :-

  • Abdominal pain
