X-ray procedures

A. Barium Studies : Using barium, an inert substance, different parts of the gastrointestinal tract are studied.We have been the pioneers in developing the use of enteroclysis for evaluation of the small bowel.

Important Things to Know

    1. Machine : Siemens 500mA machine with image intensifier with an AGFA DX-M System.
    2. Time taken : 10-20 minutes for barium swallow and meal. 1-2 hours for follow-through. 20-45 mins for enteroclysis and barium enema.
    3. Preparation/Instructions : Barium swallow for the esophagus requires no preparation. Barium meal for the stomach only needs six hours fasting and abstinence from smoking. Barium enema, follow-through and enteroclysis need a more detailed abdominal preparation, which will be explained in detail when giving the appointment.
    4. Cost : Please refer to Price List.
    5. Appointment : Virtually required for all the procedures.
    6. Report Given : Same day if the study is done before 12 noon, otherwise the next day.
    7. Primary Expert Radiologist : Dr. G. R. Jankharia
    8. Inner Spaces : 
      1. Small bowel enema
