What organs are studied during a pharyngoesophagogram

What organs are studied during a pharyngoesophagogram?

The radiologist evaluates the motility of the oral cavity, pharynx, and esophagus, and the morphology of the pharynx, esophagus, and gastric cardia. The radiologist records the fluoroscopic images of oral, pharyngeal, and esophageal motility directly into the picture archiving and communication system (PACS), into a proprietary computer system, onto a videocassette recorder (VCR), via a digital video disc (DVD) recorder, or on film (“cine”). Film has been almost completely replaced as the recording medium for motility because of increased radiation exposure, cost, and difficulty of film processing. The term “cine-esophagram” is outdated.
