Barium vs. Milk

The latest advance in CT imaging might be found in your own refrigerator...milk!

New York doctors have found that whole milk is just as effective as barium in giving doctors a good look at their digestive system with CT imaging. These scans are often done for patients who have abdominal pain. But now, researchers at St. Luke's Roosevelt Hospital in New York city say whole milk works as well and it's easier for most people to drink and the price is right since a barium drink costs about $18 but a glass of milk is cheap.
