Video: Barium X-ray or contrast study

The barium contrast study enables your physician to examine your upper gastrointestinal tract and small bowel for the presence of ulcers, tumors, strictures, and other abnormalities.  It also allows visualization of motor or motion abnormalities of the esophagus, stomach, and small bowel and assessment of gastroesophageal reflux.
