DIGESTIVE DISORDERS >> Test >> Upper Gastrointestinal Series (UGI)
The upper gastrointestinal series (UGI) examines the upper and middle part of the intestinal tract.  To perform the UGI, the patient is made to consume a drink of barium and water. Sometimes this drink is combined with gas-producing crystals that are swallowed alone or with water. The doctor uses fluoroscopy connected to a video monitor to watch the barium progress through your esophagus. Several X-ray pictures are taken at different times and from different directions throughout the procedure.
