Gastrografin Challenge

Date: Feb 14, 2023


Can you please help explain what a gastrografin challenge is, and what is the correct coding? The description from the provider is "gastrografin challenge is contrast given and then a plain abd film taken." I am not sure if this is a fluoro bowel study, a 1 view abdomen x-ray, or multiple views of the abdomen x-rays.
