A continuous X-ray beam is passed via the body part being analyzed. The beam is transmitted to some TV-like monitor so the body part and its motion can be seen in detail. Fluoroscopy, as an imaging tool, enables doctors to look such as the skeletal, digestive, urinary, respiratory, and reproductive systems.
Fluoroscopy could be performed to evaluate specific aspects of the body, like the bones, muscles, and joints, as well as solid organs, such as lung, the heart, or kidneys.
Please see these procedures for additional advice.
Reasons for the process
Fluoroscopy is used in various kinds of evaluations and processes, such as barium X rays, cardiac catheterization, arthrography (visualization of a joint or joints), lumbar puncture, placement of intravenous (IV) catheters (hollow tubes inserted into veins or arteries), intravenous pyelogram, hysterosalpingogram, and biopsies.
Fluoroscopy might be used alone as a diagnostic procedure, or can be utilized in conjunction with other diagnostic or curative media or procedures.
