Barium Studies


A fluoroscopic examination involves ingesting prescribed fluids to evaluate the entire gastrointestinal system. All fluoroscopic examinations are performed by our experienced physicians and technologists.

Fluoroscopy uses x-ray technology as well as contrast to evaluate particular organs of the body. They usually require special preparation, so be sure to ask the scheduling department for more information when you make your appointment. At Tower Radiology, you can be sure that a qualified physician will be performing your study.
