What is Fluoroscopy?
A fluoroscopy is a study of moving body structures, like an x-ray “movie” of the inside of the body. A continuous x-ray beam is passed through the body part being examined. The beam is then transmitted to a monitor so that the body part and its motion can be seen in detail. A fluoroscopy, as an imaging tool, enables physicians to look at many body systems, including the skeletal, digestive, urinary, respiratory, and reproductive systems. Fluoroscopic imaging services available include: Barium swallow, Upper GI, Small bowel studies, Barium enema studies, Arthrography (+/- CT, MR), Hysterosalpingography (HSG), and Pediatric studies.
