Fluoroscopy is a study of moving body structures--similar to an X ray "movie." A constant X ray beam is passed via the body part being examined. The beam is transmitted to some TV-like monitor so that its movement and the body part could be observed in detail. As an imaging tool, enables physicians to look such as the skeletal, digestive, urinary, respiratory, and reproductive systems.
Fluoroscopy may be performed to assess particular aspects of the body, including muscles, the bones, 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 may be used by itself as a diagnostic procedure, or might be used along with therapeutic media or other diagnostic or processes.
