What Is Fluoroscopy?

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

Fluoroscopy could be performed to evaluate particular areas of the body, like the bones, muscles, and joints, along with solid organs, such as the heart, lung, or kidneys.

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

Reasons for the process

Fluoroscopy may be used together with other diagnostic or therapeutic media or processes, or may be utilized by itself as a diagnostic procedure.
