How does the patient obtain the results of the upper GI series?

After the radiology technician develops the X-ray film or digital image, it is transferred to the radiologist physician. The radiologist interprets the body images produced. The radiologist then generates a report that is transmitted to the physician who requested the test. The radiologist and the practitioner often review the findings together. The practitioner can review the results of the upper GI series with the patient and can proceed with therapy or discuss whether other tests may be necessary.
