In brief: Unlikely

Barium swallow assesses the width and contours of the esophagus, the tube that connects your throat and stomach.
Narrowing (presumably of esophagus) may be related to a variety of factors, many benign and some more concerning. Cat scan is an x-ray which spins around you and generates a 3 dimensional picture of the inside of your chest or abdomen. Endoscopy may also be needed for further assessment.
