Barium enema (BE) x-ray exams are another colorectal cancer screening option.
4,5) Colorectal cancer is currently detected by a variety of image- and stool-based screening methods, such as the fecal occult blood test (FOBT), double-contrast barium enema, and colonoscopy.

In some cases, a flexible sigmoidoscopy, which is like a colonoscopy but only inspects the first third of the colon, is used in conjunction with a barium enema.
Several options exist for colon cancer screening: fecal occult blood tests (which checks for hidden blood in the stool), flexible sigmoidoscopy (which uses a short flexible scope to examine the lower portion of the colon and rectum), barium enema (an X-ray of the colon), virtual colonoscopy (a more specialized X-ray using CAT scan technology) and colonoscopy (which uses a long flexible scope to examine the entire colon).
Methods used to detect effects were oro-cecal transit time by hydrogen expiration, total gastrointestinal transit time by carmine red method, gastric emptying time by radiolabelled test meal or sonography, direct observation of colonic motility or indirect recording through pressure changes or relieve of colonic spasms during barium enema examination.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that show that the typical cost of a screening procedure is about $10 to $25 for a fecal occult blood test, $150 to $300 for a flexible sigmoidoscopy, $250 to $500 for a double-contrast barium enema, and $800 to $1,600 for a colonoscopy.
