Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    how do you administer a barium for small intestine

    • A.

      Mouth

    • B.

      Reflux filling

    • C.

      Enteroclysis

    • D.

      All of above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of above
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "all of above". This means that barium can be administered for small intestine examination through the mouth, reflux filling, and enteroclysis. These are different methods of administering barium depending on the specific requirements of the examination. Administering barium through the mouth is the most common method, where the patient drinks a barium solution. Reflux filling involves using a catheter to introduce barium into the small intestine through the stomach. Enteroclysis is a more invasive procedure where barium is directly introduced into the small intestine through a tube inserted through the nose or mouth.

    what is part of the preferred prep for small intestine?

    • A.

      Soft or low residue diet 2 days before

    • B.

      Nothing to eat 24 hrs before exam

    • C.

      By cleansing enema only

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Soft or low residue diet 2 days before
    Explanation
    The preferred prep for the small intestine includes following a soft or low residue diet for 2 days before the exam. This is because a soft or low residue diet helps to reduce the amount of undigested food and residue in the intestines, making it easier for the doctor to visualize the small intestine during the exam. This prep method allows for a clearer and more accurate examination of the small intestine.

  • 4. 

    what radiograph is usually taken b4 a small bowel series?

    • A.

      Rectum

    • B.

      Kub

    • C.

      Lateral rectum

    • D.

      Rao stomach

    Correct Answer
    B. Kub
    Explanation
    A KUB (Kidneys, Ureters, Bladder) radiograph is usually taken before a small bowel series. This is because a KUB can provide a baseline image of the abdomen and help identify any abnormalities or obstructions in the gastrointestinal tract. It can also help determine the positioning and size of the small bowel loops before the series is performed.

    The pt's bladder should be emptied b4 a procedure 4 small to avoid displacing the:

    • A.

      Ileum

    • B.

      Cecum

    • C.

      Right flecure

    • D.

      Ascending colon

    Correct Answer
    A. Ileum
    Explanation
    The correct answer is ileum because emptying the bladder before a procedure prevents it from displacing the surrounding organs. The ileum is a part of the small intestine and is located near the bladder. If the bladder is full during a procedure, it can push against the ileum and potentially cause displacement or other complications. Therefore, emptying the bladder beforehand is necessary to ensure the safety and accuracy of the procedure.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    what is the supine useful 4 with small series

    • A.

      Better visualization w/barium filled stomach for duodenum/jejunum

    • B.

      Prevent overlapping of loops

    • C.

      Take advantage of the superior and lateral shift

    • D.

      All of above

    Correct Answer
    B. Prevent overlapping of loops
    Explanation
    The supine position is useful for preventing overlapping of loops in small series imaging. This position helps to separate and visualize the duodenum and jejunum more clearly by reducing the overlapping of intestinal loops. This allows for better visualization of the barium-filled stomach and improves the overall imaging quality.

    • D.

      When barium reaches cecum

    Correct Answer
    D. When barium reaches cecum
    Explanation
    The completion of the exam on pa small occurs when barium reaches the cecum. This indicates that the barium has successfully passed through the small intestine and has reached the beginning of the large intestine. The cecum is the first part of the large intestine, located in the lower right abdomen. Once the barium reaches this point, it signifies that the exam has covered the entire small intestine and is ready to proceed to the next stage of the procedure.

      AIR

    • B.

      BARIUM

    • C.

      IODINATED WATER

    • D.

      THE SIGMOID

    Correct Answer
    B. BARIUM
    Explanation
    On a right lateral decubitus position, the right colic flexure refers to the bend in the colon where the ascending colon transitions into the transverse colon. The presence of barium in the right colic flexure indicates that barium, a contrast agent commonly used in imaging tests such as barium enemas, has reached this specific area of the colon. This answer suggests that the barium has successfully passed through the ascending colon and is now present in the right colic flexure.

    • C.

      Iodinated water

    • D.

      The sigmoid

    Correct Answer
    A. Air
    Explanation
    In a right lateral decubitus position, the left colic flexure refers to the bend or curve in the colon located on the left side of the body. The presence of air in the left colic flexure indicates that there is gas present in that specific area of the colon. This could be a normal finding or could indicate the presence of gas trapped in that part of the colon, potentially due to a blockage or other gastrointestinal issue.

    • A.

      LEFT COLIC

    • B.

      RIGHT COLIC

    • C.

      ASCENDING COLON

    • D.

      DESCENDING COLON

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. LEFT COLIC
    D. DESCENDING COLON
    Explanation
    In a left lateral decubitus position, the patient is lying on their left side. The barium, which is a contrast material used in medical imaging, will settle in the lowest part of the colon due to gravity. In this position, the lowest part of the colon is the descending colon, which is located on the left side of the body. Therefore, the correct answer is "LEFT COLIC, DESCENDING COLON."

  • 16. 

    WHERE DOES BARIUM SIT IN A VENTRAL DECUB LEFT LATERAL

    • A.

      TRANSVERSE

    • B.

      ASCENDING

    • C.

      RECTUM

    • D.

      DESCENDING

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. TRANSVERSE
    B. ASCENDING
    Explanation
    Barium is a contrast agent used in medical imaging to visualize the gastrointestinal tract. In a ventral decubitus position, the patient lies on their back with the X-ray machine positioned above them. In this position, the barium would be located in the transverse and ascending portions of the colon. The transverse colon runs horizontally across the abdomen, while the ascending colon travels up the right side of the abdomen. Therefore, the correct answer is "TRANSVERSE, ASCENDING."

    WHICH POSITION less superimposes the right COLIC FLEC

    • A.

      PA OBL RAO

    • B.

      PA OBL LAO

    • C.

      PA OBL LPO

    • D.

      PA AXIAL

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. PA OBL RAO
    C. PA OBL LPO
    Explanation
    The positions PA OBL RAO and PA OBL LPO are the ones that less superimpose the right colic flexure. These positions involve an oblique angle of the patient's body, which helps to separate and visualize the right colic flexure more clearly. PA OBL RAO refers to a posterior-anterior oblique position with the patient rotated to the right, while PA OBL LPO refers to a posterior-anterior oblique position with the patient rotated to the left. These positions allow for better visualization of the right colic flexure by minimizing superimposition with other structures.

    • C.

      LATERAL PROJ

    • D.

      PA AXIAL

    Correct Answer
    B. PA OBL LAO
    Explanation
    The position that less superimposes the left colic flexure is PA OBL LAO. This position allows for a better visualization of the left colic flexure by angling the x-ray beam in an oblique direction from a posterior to anterior direction, with the patient in a left anterior oblique position. This helps to separate the structures and reduce superimposition, allowing for a clearer image of the left colic flexure.
