What Is Fluoroscop Sciences?

Fluoroscopy is a study of moving body structures--similar to an X ray "movie." A constant X-ray beam is passed through the body part being analyzed. The beam is transmitted to some TV-like monitor so the body part and its motion may be viewed in detail. Fluoroscopy, as an imaging tool, enables doctors to look such as the skeletal, digestive, urinary, respiratory, and reproductive systems.

Fluoroscopy may be performed to assess specific regions of the entire body, including the bones, muscles, and joints, along with solid organs, such as kidneys, lung, or the heart.

Please see these procedures for additional info.

Reasons for the process

Fluoroscopy is used in various kinds of assessments 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 may be used in conjunction with other diagnostic or therapeutic media or procedures, or may be used alone as a diagnostic procedure.
