GI Radiology

What is GI Radiology?

There are two types of studies that are often used to visualize the gastrointestinal system: the Upper GI series and the barium enema.

A radiologist will talk with you about the test and answer your questions. The test is performed in the Radiology Department.

Upper GI Series

The Upper GI series is an x-ray examination of the upper intestinal tract. It visualizes the stomach, esophagus, and small intestine. The procedure may be different for each patient.

Barium Enema

The barium enema is an x-ray study of the large intestine. A barium solution, which appears white on an x-ray, is given as an enema. This makes the colon visible on an x-ray.
