Defecography is a special X-Ray test used to evaluate bowel function.  The test is routinely performed in the radiology department.  Contrast material (barium) similar to the consistency of stool is placed into the rectum.  Fluoroscopy is then performed during squeezing and relaxation of the pelvic floor and during evacuation of the contrast material.
