X-ray examination of the digestive system

Successful results of x-ray study of the digestive system can be achieved using the correct methods of research.
For obtaining x-ray images of the digestive system have to resort to the use of artificial contrast. There are two possibilities to obtain contrast x-ray image of the digestive system: 1) the injection of air and 2) ingestion or through the introduction enema mixtures containing salts of heavy metals. The first way has found limited application in radiological practice and in most cases is used to achieve double contrast study or in combination with the introduction of gas into the peritoneal cavity or into the retroperitoneal space (paleography, retropropulsion). The second way is very common and is used to contrast studies of the digestive system.
Common is the use of liquid suspensions of barium sulphate. This medication is the most convenient, because, being absolutely insoluble in water and in the juices of the body and chemically inactive, it is absolutely harmless even in big quantities.
Preparation of the patient to x-ray study requires special attention. Prior studies on the evening of the patient is recommended to clean the intestine by promyshlennoi enemas. Since that time the patient stops food.
On the morning of the study two hours before the x-ray procedures is another cleansing enema. With persistent constipation, you can resort to the country of castor oil per day before the study, followed by a colon cleansing using promyshlennyh enemas.
In recent years, is increasingly developing a new technique of x-ray studies using electronoptical Converter. It allows to conduct research with significant improvement of visibility and make rentgenokhirurgicheskogo imaging of the digestive system. Became available for the use of television in practice, x-ray examinations, keeping them at a distance, with dramatically reduced radiation dose.
