What Is an X-Ray Fluoroscopy?
Fluoroscopy is an imaging technique that allows physicians to look at moving bodily structures in real-time. Many compare this to an X-ray movie because images are transmitted to a TV-like monitor so the body parts’ motion can be seen in detail.
A fluoroscope utilizes an X-ray source and a fluorescent screen. The X-ray beam passes through the body part being examined. Some of the most common bodily structures analyzed using fluoroscopy include bones, muscles, joints, and organs like the lungs, heart, kidneys and more. Using the images created, physicians can look at many body systems in great detail.
