An image after a patient swallows some barium for a gastric band adjustment.
The large black circle is called the pseudopouch. This is the area of the stomach above the band. At the five o'clock position, you can see a "point". This is the barium as it begins moving through the band. The black image to the right is barium that has passed through the band into the small intestine.
