Small Bowel Exam

  • Bowel radiography is an x-ray examination of the small intestines that uses a special form of x-ray called fluoroscopy and an orally ingested contrast material called barium.
  • An x-ray is a noninvasive exam that helps your physician diagnose and treat your medical conditions. X-rays involves exposing a part of the body to a small dose of ionizing radiation to produce images of the inside of the body.
  • Fluoroscopy is x-rays that let the physicians see your internal organs in motion. When the small intestines are coated with barium, the radiologist can view and see the anatomy and function of the small intestines.
