Small Bowel Follow-Through
A small bowel follow-through is an X-ray image of your stomach and the upper section of the small intestine. To be able to see these structures on an X-ray, they must be outlined with barium. Patients must swallow barium to illuminate the small bowel anatomy. The barium liquid appears white on an X-ray image. This procedure can take anywhere from 1-6 hours.
