Fluoroscopy

What is Fluoroscopy?

Fluoroscopy is a type of medical imaging that shows a continuous x-ray image on a monitor, much like an x-ray movie. It is used to diagnose or treat patients by displaying the movement of a body part or of an instrument or dye (contrast agent) through the body. During a fluoroscopy procedure, an x-ray beam is passed through the body. The image is transmitted to a monitor so that the body part and its motion can be seen in detail.

Fluoroscopy is used in many types of examinations and procedures. Fluoroscopy is an enhanced x-ray that produces images on a monitor for diagnosis of abnormalities of the digestive tract, kidneys and gallbladder. Fluoroscopy is typically used for Upper and Lower GI studies.

Some examples include:

  • Barium x-rays and enemas (to view movement through the GI tract)
  • Catheter insertion (to direct the placement of a catheter during angioplasty or angiography)
  • Blood flow studies (to visualize blood flow to organs)
  • Orthopedic surgery (to view fractures and fracture treatments)
