How to prepare for your examination
  • Do not eat or drink 4 hours before your exam. You may eat dinner but a light meal no fried foods.
  • (FOR ABD/PEL) One bottle of barium must be consumed the night before the exam. The second bottle of barium should be consumed one hour prior to the exam. It is very important that the patient does not eat or drink anything 4 hours prior to the procedure. You may want to cool your barium before consumption. Please shake well before consumption. Using a straw may make it easier to consume the barium. 
  • If your doctor has ordered your exam ‘with contrast’ (see above or your order) please answer the following:
    • Are you allergic to iodine? Shellfish? If yes, please inform the scheduler of your reaction.
    • Are you diabetic? If yes, discontinue your GLUCOPHAGE/METFORMIN/GLOCOVANCE FOR 2 DAYS AFTER YOUR EXAM. PLEASE CONTIUE ALL OTHER MEDS AS USUAL.
    • Are you pregnant? If yes, please inform the scheduler so we can get verification from the radiologist that you can proceed with exam.
  • Please bring any prior films of the same body area with you.
  • Please arrive 30 minutes prior to your exam. 
  • Please contact our office at 281-453-7999 if you have any questions or to cancel or reschedule.
