Update: barium contrast shortage

There continues to be a North American barium shortage; however, the S. Mark Taper Foundation Imaging Center was fortunate to receive a small and unexpected delivery. This will enable you to continue ordering esophagrams, upper GIs, small bowel series, barium enemas and video swallowing studies.

In the event our supplies are depleted, you and your patient will be notified.

As we receive more updates, we will alert you.

Our GI radiologists are available for questions at (310) 423-2723.
