Medically reviewed by Drugs.com. Last updated on Sep 2, 2019.

The volume of the CT barium sulfate suspension to be administered will depend on the degree and extent of contrast required in the area(s) under examination and on the technique employed.

For Oral Administration: GI Tract Marking:

The patient should begin drinking NeuLumEX approximately 20 – 30 minutes prior to the scheduled procedure. It is recommended that the patient consume multiple bottles, about 900 mL to 1,350 mL total volume prior to the exam or use as directed by physician. For improved gastric marking have patient consume the final 200 mL immediately prior to scan. Bowel marking is consistent due to the uniformity of the 0.1% concentration of BaSO4. Bowel lumen marking can be improved by increasing the volume of NeuLumEX consumed (see below). Other dosing regimens may be followed as applicable. In patients where marking is problematic, such as obesity and delayed transit, improved marking may be possible by increasing the total volume of NeuLumEX administered up to 1,800 mL or four (4) bottles.
