Fluoroscopy (G.I. Exams)

Fluoroscopy is a continuous x-ray image that creates a moving picture of the inside of the body, and it is what is used for exams of the gastrointestinal (G.I.) tract.

Upper G.I. Series

During your upper G.I. exam, you will be asked to drink a solution of Barium, (a white chalky powder and water). Barium is used because it absorbs x-rays and appears white on x-ray images. The radiologist will be able to watch on a monitor as the liquid Barium passes through your digestive tract. Once the solution has coated the walls of the esophagus and stomach, x-ray images are taken to capture the size, shape, and contour of the upper digestive tract.

An upper G.I. series is used to identify the existence of abnormalities such as tumors, ulcers, and hernias, as well as to determine the cause of certain symptoms such as pain or difficulty swallowing.

After the Exam

Images are reviewed by one of our radiologists for interpretation. Results are sent to your Health Care Provider and you will be able to discuss the results of your exam with them.
