1 Answer:

Good evening, thanks for the question

OMD is an extension of the esophagus (esophagus), maagh (stomach), duodenum (small intestine). OMD examination is a radiological examination technique to evaluate upper gastrointestinal examination using barium sulfate contrast media. Barium has a taste like chalk, but there is also a taste.

After the contrast medium is drunk, the contrast will pass through the digestive tract and then the x-ray will capture the digestive picture more clearly. This examination can detect the presence of injuries in the gastrointestinal tract, tumors, blockages, narrowing, and so forth.

Some mild side effects that may be felt in this examination include:
1. Nausea
2. Constipation
3. The stool will turn white

Complaints of nausea will decrease as barium reaches the lower gastrointestinal tract, while constipation can be treated by consuming more water. A white stool complaint is only temporary after this examination.

An alternative examination that has the usefulness of assessing the upper gastrointestinal tract for example gastroscopy, which is to insert a kind of binoculars into the gastrointestinal tract, or CT scan.

That's all, hope you can help
Wassalam.
