What Do You Know About The Gastrointestinal (GI) X-ray? - Quiz

Gastrointestinal (GI) X-ray is a safely noninvasive examination which uses fluoroscopy and a contrast material to produce images of the stomach and related organs. Take this quiz to find out more.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Upper gastrointestinal tract radiography uses a form of real-time X-ray called...

    • A.

      Fluroscopy

    • B.

      Baroscopy

    • C.

      Fluoroscopy

    • D.

      Barescopy

    Correct Answer
    C. Fluoroscopy
    Explanation
    Fluoroscopy is the correct answer because upper gastrointestinal tract radiography involves the use of real-time X-ray imaging. Fluoroscopy is a technique that allows continuous X-ray imaging of the patient's digestive system in motion. It provides a dynamic view of the upper gastrointestinal tract, allowing the radiologist to observe the passage of contrast material through the esophagus, stomach, and small intestine. Baroscopy and barescopy are not recognized terms in medical imaging, and fluroscopy is a misspelling of fluoroscopy.

    When undergoing the X-ray, one's stomach must be...

    • A.

      Empty

    • B.

      Full

    • C.

      Half-empty

    • D.

      Half-full

    Correct Answer
    A. Empty
    Explanation
    When undergoing an X-ray, it is important for the stomach to be empty. This is because having food or liquid in the stomach can interfere with the clarity of the X-ray image. When the stomach is empty, it allows for a clear visualization of the organs and structures in the abdomen, making it easier for the healthcare professional to identify any abnormalities or diagnose any conditions accurately.

  • 3. 

    The X-ray is an examination of one of the following except...

    • A.

      Esophagus

    • B.

      Stomach

    • C.

      Diaphragm

    • D.

      Duodenum

    Correct Answer
    C. Diaphragm
    Explanation
    The X-ray is an examination of various parts of the body to diagnose and monitor medical conditions. The esophagus, stomach, and duodenum are all commonly examined using X-rays to detect abnormalities such as ulcers, tumors, or blockages. However, the diaphragm is not typically examined using X-rays, as it is a muscle that separates the chest and abdominal cavities and is not usually a site of pathology. Therefore, the correct answer is "Diaphragm."

    The name of the orally ingested contrast material is...

    • A.

      Berrylium

    • B.

      Promethazine

    • C.

      Barium

    • D.

      Berrilium

    Correct Answer
    C. Barium
    Explanation
    Barium is the correct answer because it is a commonly used contrast material for imaging tests such as X-rays and CT scans. When ingested orally, barium coats the inside of the digestive tract, allowing for better visualization of the esophagus, stomach, and intestines. It helps to highlight any abnormalities or blockages in these areas, aiding in the diagnosis of various gastrointestinal conditions. Berrylium and Berrilium are incorrect spellings and do not refer to any contrast material used in medical imaging. Promethazine is a medication used to treat allergies and motion sickness but is not a contrast material.
