Yes, the iodine based barium solution they give you for the scan can cause diarrhea.

If it causes a severe case everytime you have a scan talk to your doctor because there are a few syndromes and tumors that cause the same as a reaction to the dye (like I become horridly sick after a scan and later found out I had adrenal tumors and wasn't suppose to have the dye).
