Upper Gastrointestinal (GI) Series - A Pinnacle of Precision

At the heart of our Advanced Fluoroscopy Suite lies the remarkable upper GI series (aka “barium swallow”). A barium swallow is a pivotal diagnostic tool that provides an intricate view of the upper digestive tract. It involves the consumption of a contrast medium (generally barium), followed by real-time X-ray imaging as the substance travels through the esophagus, stomach, and small intestine.

Importance in the Bariatric Surgery patient

For patients embarking on or having undergone bariatric surgery, the barium swallow is an invaluable resource. This procedure aids in several essential aspects of their healthcare journey:

Precise Evaluation

The barium swallow offers detailed insights into the functionality of the gastrointestinal tract post-surgery. It ensures that the surgical intervention has been successful and that there are no complications affecting the passage of food or liquids.

Diagnostic Prowess

As a non-invasive diagnostic procedure, the barium swallow helps identify potential issues such as strictures, leaks, or abnormal motility patterns. Early detection of these concerns ensures prompt intervention, minimizing risks and discomfort.

Therapeutic Guidance

The real-time imaging during the barium swallow allows our experienced medical team to provide personalized recommendations and interventions tailored to your needs. This might include adjusting dietary habits, identifying obstruction points, or suggesting further treatments if necessary.

Prognostic Value

The data gathered from the barium swallow serves as a baseline for tracking your progress over time. It aids in assessing the success of your bariatric surgery and allows our medical experts to make informed decisions about your ongoing care.
