Looking at intestine
A small bowel
xray is one way that doctors can check to see it looks the way it should and can help decide if it working the way it should.
Usually you are given something to drink (a thick substance called barium
) that makes your intestines show up on the xray. Depending on how your intestine
looks on the xray, it can help doctors find the problem.
