Fluoroscopy is an x-ray video rather than a still x-ray image. Your practitioner
can use this to see specific parts of the body in motion by displaying
live x-ray images to a monitor.
Some fluoroscopic procedures involve drinking or eating barium, a safe
element that appears clearly on x-ray. This allows your practitioner to
easily see how your esophagus, intestines or other body parts are functioning.
Who can benefit from fluoroscopic procedures?
Fluoroscopic procedures can be used for a wide range of people. Each procedure
is used to treat a specific condition or set of symptoms. From HSG which
examines the female reproductive system to arthrography which examines
joints, there are many uses for fluoroscopy. Your doctor will order the
appropriate exam if needed.
