Will A Chest Xray Show Acid Reflux Or The Effects Of It Will The Throat Be Seen As Well Or Would That Require Another Xray
Will a chest xray show acid reflux or the effects of it? Will the throat be seen as well or would that require another xray?
Barium swallow: A chest radiograph (xray) won't show acid reflux and may not show the throat region.

The throat can be seen during the barium swallow and endoscopy. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Bronchitis vs reflux: You have asked a somewhat challenging question, to which the answer would be greatly aided by a detailed history and physical exam.

Speaking in generalities, bronchitis would tend to be more acute and severe, while reflux would tend to be more chronic and less severe, but exceptions abound. ...Read more
