What Is The Science of Fluoroscopy?

Fluoroscopy is a study of moving body structures--similar to an X ray "movie." A continuous X-ray beam is passed via the body part being examined. The beam is transmitted into a TV-like monitor so that its movement and the body part 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 specific regions of the entire body, such as the bones, muscles, and joints, as well as solid organs, such as lung, the heart, or kidneys.

Other related procedures that will be utilized to diagnose problems of the bones, muscles, or joints contain 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 may be used along with other diagnostic or curative media or processes, or may be used alone as a diagnostic procedure.
