CASE 7-12G KUB The next day, the patient was returned to the radiology department for “barium in the belly,” which refers to the previous day’s results that indicated there was heavy barium residue in the colon. This residue would prevent clarity on visualization Dr. Jayco wants the patient to have a CT scan. Comparison is made with previous study performed yesterday, H barium is again seen within portions of the descending and signot colon This is decreased compared with the previous study, however te heavy barium still would create a significant artifact.I would recommend that CT be rescheduled for perhaps tomorrow or Monday to ensure the this heavy barium is no longer present. The gastrointestinal air paten is relatively nonspecific. LOCATION: Inpatient, Hospital PATIENT Maynard Peters CONCLUSION: Residual heavy barium seen within portions of the transverse, descending, and sigmoid colon. It is decreased compared with the previous study, and yet still a significant amount is present which I believe would create significant artifact on the CT scan tha is planned. I would recommend delaying it until this barium has cleared ATTENDING PHYSICIAN Gordon Jayco, MD RADIOLOGIST Morton Monson, MD EXAMINATION OF KUB (kidney, ureter, bladder) CLINICAL SYMPTOMS Barium in belly in patient with diarrhea, vomiting in a patient with a history of kidney and pancreas transplant KUB This is performed pre-CT (computerized tomography) to determine whether barium has cleared adequately to obtain a CT.
