Fluoroscopy is a technique for obtaining “live” x-ray images of a patient. It uses a continuous stream of x-ray to evaluate structures and movement within your body. Basically, it enables the physician to use a continuous x-ray to view the movements inside of your body on a computer screen. Fluoroscopy is often used to observe the digestive tract.
Fluoroscopy is an imaging technique that uses x-ray to obtain real-time moving images of the interior of your body. The Radiologist can then watch the images “live” on a TV monitor.
Using fluoroscopy, physicians can observe the diaphragm moving up and down, or bowel patterns in the digestive tract. It can be used to evaluate for bowel tumors, obstructive ulcers and inflammatory disease. It can also be used to help a physician position a catheter for a procedure, inject a needle internally, or realign a broken bone.
Fluoroscopy is also used during many diagnostic and therapeutic Radiologic procedures, to observe the action of instruments being used either to diagnose or to treat the patient.
