There are two varieties of barium meal: single and double contrast meals.

Fluoroscopy uses a source of radiation (X-Rays) directed toward the patient, but in these examinations, the internal organs must be dyed in order to study them with a radiopaque material (barium). This will absorb more radiation and provide an image in single or double contrast (air may also be added) to study and analyze the structures better.
