To make the patient as comfortable as possible during a single-contrast barium enema (BE), the radiographer should

1. instruct the patient to relax the abdominal muscles to prevent intra-abdominal pressure.
2. instruct the patient to concentrate on breathing deeply to reduce colonic spasm.
3. prepare a warm barium suspension (98 to 105°F) to aid in retention.
