In an earlier paper a new pump device for medical applications was described. This enabled a continuous flow of saline, barium contrast agent and gases. We now report further study of this device: The use of gases was experimentally studied to give a basis for use in CT-colonography. We also report experiences from injection of barium contrast agent via a naso-duodenal tube for radiological investigation of the small intestine in patients with gastrointestinal suffering. The radiation exposure to the x-ray staff was reduced. The investigation procedure was standardised and shortened.
