Test Details
Test Code:RA0218
Test Name:Barium Enema
Test Details & Preparation
A barium enema is an X-ray exam that can detect changes or abnormalities in the large intestine (colon). The procedure is also called a colon X-ray.

An enema is the injection of a liquid into your rectum through a small tube. In this case, the liquid contains a metallic substance (barium) that coats the lining of the colon. Normally, an X-ray produces a poor image of soft tissues, but the barium coating results in a relatively clear silhouette of the colon.

During a barium enema exam, air may be pumped into the colon. The air expands the colon and improves the quality of images. This is called an air-contrast (double-contrast) barium enema.

Before a barium enema, your doctor will instruct you to completely empty your colon.

Your doctor may recommend a barium enema to determine the cause of signs and symptoms, such as abdominal pain, rectal bleeding, changes in bowel habits, unexplained weight loss, chronic diarrhoea and persistent constipation.

A barium enema X-ray may enable your doctor to detect such conditions as abnormal growths (polyps) and inflammatory bowel disease.

During your barium enema, you'll wear a gown and be asked to remove eyewear, jewellery or removable dental devices. The exam will be performed by a radiology technician and a physician who specializes in diagnostic imaging (radiologist).

A barium enema exam is considered negative if the radiologist detects no abnormalities in the colon.

A barium enema exam is considered positive if the radiologist detects abnormalities in the colon. Depending on the findings, you may need additional testing - such as a colonoscopy - so that any abnormalities can be examined more thoroughly, biopsied or removed.
