Important information

  • An X‑ray of the stomach is performed with a contrast agent, which is administered orally.
  • A possible pregnancy must be ruled out.

Procedure for an X-ray of the stomach

  • You are asked to swallow sherbet powder, which causes air to form in the stomach and thereby improves imaging.
  • You will subsequently be asked to drink a contrast agent.
  • After lying down, you will be asked to rotate your body so that the contrast agent disperses evenly.
  • Images are subsequently recorded in the supine, prone and lateral position.
