Why Get Tested

  2. To evaluate the cause of any change in your bowel movements
  3. To diagnose any suspected cancer of the small intestine
  4. To diagnose suspected diverticular disease or polyps or cysts of the small intestine
  5. To diagnose the cause of any non-specific stomach pain

Precautions

  • Pregnant women should inform their doctor (and x-ray technician) as the radiations may affect the fetus. If needed, precautions can be taken to lower the radiation exposure to the fetus.
  • Depending on the area to be imaged, you may be asked to wear a hospital gown at the time of the X-ray.
