Laboratory Tests For Gastroenterology

Radiological Imaging

  • Computed Tomography (CT scan) – An imaging test that uses X-rays and a computer to give images of various body parts – bone, muscles, fat, and various organs.
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging – This imaging test uses large magnets, radiofrequency, and a computer to provide images of organs and body structures.
  • Magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) is mainly used to obtain pictures of the bile duct using MRI.
  • Barium enema – A test used to examine the large intestine and rectum; it checks for blockages and obstructions.
