  • G.I scan as in upper G.I? If so depending how old they are the scan will be different. If it is a infant the have this velcro board they strap them to so it is easy to move them. If it is an older child they will let them lay on their own just asking them to move into position. They are also given Barium to drink. White chalk like stuff in liquid. So that it lights the digestive tract.
