Gastro-Jejunostomy (GJ) tubes are commonly placed and exchanged by interventional radiologists (IR) in pediatric patients requiring transpyloric feeds. GJ tubes with slight variations are available from different manufacturers, most frequently used are Avanos Medical, Inc. (previously Halyard Medical Devices) and Applied Medical Technology (AMT).

Gastrostomy tube (GT) or gastrojejunostomy tube (GJT) checks are a frequently ordered radiographic procedure to confirm placement. The goal of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of after-hours examinations for GJ or GJT placement using abdominal radiographs after injection of contrast, as compared to traditional fluoroscopy exams, which utilize a radiologist to perform the procedure.
