X-ray examination of the esophagus is one of the main tests in the practice of the hospital.
The value of X-ray examination cannot be reduced by gastroscopy. X-ray examination is easy and does not cause any pain to the patient. It has a special feature without any difficulty.
But there is also something to look out for. Do not take this test if you have stomach ulcers or bleeding. You can eat a light meal the night before X-ray examination, and after 20:00 you can consume a little tea and biscuits.
People who have a lot of flatulence can take one tablet of carbolene three times a day. 200 grams of barium sulfate is used to analyze the stomach and esophagus.
If the medicine is not provided by the hospital, and the patient must bring it from the pharmacy, you should pay attention to the following points.
It should be noted that barium sulfate is not lime as we are used to saying.
It is a white powdery substance that is not absorbed in the lower intestine and does not react in the body.
However, it is advisable to carefully check the validity period when taking it from the pharmacy. The barium will be handed over to the X-ray technician on the morning of the examination.
Please note that the X-ray technician must prepare the barium sulfate powder according to standard procedures and prepare it for use in the test.
A large amount of water loss from the stomach, perforation of the stomach and esophagus are absolute contraindications to the test.
Pregnant women and young children should avoid this test as much as possible. In case it is not possible, it is necessary to protect the men exposed to radiation with special protection.
