Fluoroscopy is the use of a an X-ray beam by a board certified radiologist to produce real time images of your anatomy in question. The images are captured and viewed on a fluoroscope, which looks like a small television. Unlike a traditional X-ray that produces a single image, fluoroscopy allows the radiologist to see contrast moving through your body in real time.
In addition to skeletal images, fluoroscopy is used to look at the digestive, urinary, respiratory and reproductive systems. You can review information specific to your scan by selecting from the 'study type' menu in the left column.
