Gastrointestinal Complications of Radiologic Procedures

Chapter
Part of the Radiology of Iatrogenic Disorders book series (IATROGENIC)

Abstract

Barium studies of the gastrointestinal tract are the contrast examinations most frequently performed by radiologists. The inert nature of barium sulfate and its use as a suspension of insoluble particles make the routine examination of the gastrointestinal tract the safest of radiologic contrast examinations. Complications of these studies are very infrequent considering the vast numbers performed—more than 10 million in 1964 (1).
