ChangoBravo - Generally, the barium enema is provided by the RN prior to the imaging. It happens some times, but it is rare for the tech to give the enema.


That must be a regional thing, because I have been in four different Boston-area radiology departments (one in the city, and the other 3 in the suburbs right outside the city) and the Barium enema is almost always administered by the technologist, while the Radiologist (or RPA) watches it under fluoroscopic imaging. RN's are not usually involved.

Barium enemas are something you have to learn in school, but depending on where you work, you don't HAVE to do them. If you work as a rad tech at a smaller hospital, your time will come, for sure.

It's only a big deal if you make it one. I hope more people get grossed out by it. I'm down for less competition on the job market!
