Caption: Small intestines, coloured X-ray. The four X-rays reveal the passage of a swallowed barium contrast medium through the upper part of the digestive system. The medium shows up white on X-rays. The four X-rays were taken at different times, to assess the progress of material from the stomach through the intestines (white loops). This diagnostic technique is useful for locating blockages or other intestinal disorders. This patient is healthy.
