What is Barium Swallow?
The Barium Meal Swallow test is an imaging test that uses X-rays to scan and photograph the throat/food pipe after consuming a barium solution. It helps in diagnosis of the conditions affecting these regions and is used to visually assess its abnormalities.
Why is Barium Swallow done?
- • To look for abnormalities of the pharynx (throat) and oesophagus (food pipe), and help diagnose various conditions like blockages, strictures, diverticuli, polyps, cysts, tumors (abnormal growth) and ulcers • To diagnose hiatus hernia (a condition in which the stomach has moved up alongside the esophagus) • To diagnose the cause of persisting gastro-esophageal reflux • To diagnose the cancer of the neck, pharynx, or esophagus • To evaluate the cause of enlarged veins in the esophagus (varices), muscle disorders, such as difficulty in swallowing (dysphagia) or spasms • To identify achalasia (a condition in which it is difficult for food to pass into the stomach)
