Radiografía del anillo de Schatzki

Se ha ingerido una solución con un medio de contraste (bario), el cual es visible en las radiografías que se han tomado del esófago (tránsito esofagogastroduodenal). Hay un estrechamiento cerca del estómago (señalada por la flecha). Este anillo de tejido no canceroso (anillo de Schatzki) puede causar problemas para deglutir (disfagia) y se puede tratar con la dilatación de dicho estrechamiento.
