What Is Fluoroscopy?

A constant X ray beam is passed via the body part being examined. The beam is transmitted into a TV-like monitor so the body part and its motion can be viewed in detail. Fluoroscopy, as an imaging tool, enables doctors to look including the skeletal, digestive, urinary, respiratory, and reproductive systems.

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

Other related procedures that will be used to diagnose problems of the bones, muscles, or joints include X-rays, myelography (myelogram), computed tomography (CT scan), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and arthrography. Please see these procedures for additional advice.

Reasons for the process

Fluoroscopy can be used in many forms of evaluations and procedures, for example 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 utilized alone as a diagnostic procedure, or may be utilized in combination with other diagnostic or curative media or processes.
