After the Test
When the test is over, your child can clean up and get dressed in the bathroom before you go home.
It is important to have your child drink plenty of water, juices and Kool-Aid after the test to help get the barium out of the body. It is possible that when they go to the bathroom it may look white for the next day or two. This is normal; it is just the contrast leaving the body. The more your child drinks, the faster the white color will fade. Your child can return to school as soon as they feel up to it.
After the images have been reviewed by the radiologist, the results will be reported directly to your referring physician. Your referring physician will discuss the findings and the plan of care with you.
