Consensus statement of society of abdominal radiology disease-focused panel on barium esophagography in gastroesophageal reflux disease

Academic Article

Abstract

  • OBJECTIVE. The Society of Abdominal Radiology established a panel to prepare a consensus statement on the role of barium esophagography in gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), as well as recommended techniques for performing the fluoroscopic examination and the gamut of fndings associated with this condition. CONCLUSION. Because it is an inexpensive, noninvasive, and widely available study that requires no sedation, barium esophagography may be performed as the initial test for GERD or in conjunction with other tests such as endoscopy.
