X-rays, while seemingly common, are actually one of the leading advances in medical history. The X-ray can be used in a variety of ways to help determine medical diagnoses. At Digestive Health Center, we use X-rays to aid in diagnosing GI problems. With the ability to noninvasively penetrate tissue and bone, X-rays can help our GI specialists get a good look at what is going on inside the GI tract. If you're experiencing abdominal pain, bloating, issues swallowing, vomiting, or something else, reach out to your nearest location to see if an abdominal X-ray in Thibodaux, LA can help you regain your comfort.



X-rays are considered generally safe. While the use of radiation does pose a small risk, there have been great strides to make these exams much safer than in the past — and many in the medical community agree that the information provided by X-rays is far greater than the risk. Improvements in film quality, electronic technology advances, and more over the last 100 years have allowed X-rays to be performed faster while creating better images and using less radiation. If you have safety concerns, are pregnant or might be pregnant, or have had X-rays in the not-so-distant future, feel free to let our team know so we can take extra precautions.

The density of the GI system allows the external outlines of organs such as the stomach, liver, and intestines to be seen with an X-ray; however, the inner parts of these organs are not visible. We are happy to use contrast materials like barium as a way to safely see the inner parts of the organs with great detail. Called fluoroscopic X-rays, using a contrast material can help aid us when making diagnoses for our Thibodaux, LA patients with greater accuracy.

X-rays are a noninvasive and trustworthy tool that physicians have been using for years to better understand the body and make informed diagnoses and treatment suggestions. The board-certified GI specialists at Digestive Health Center utilize this tool to help find answers when you're experiencing GI symptoms such as constipation, vomiting, abdominal pain, severe indigestion, and more. If you're experiencing any of the symptoms above, our team may be able to help. For more information on abdominal X-rays and the other gastroenterology services we offer, contact your nearest Thibodaux, LA location to request a consultation.
