What is Fluoroscopy?
Fluoroscopy is a study of moving body structures. It is an x-ray video that is used to image procedures and moving body parts in real time. A continuous x-ray beam is passed through the body part being examined, and is transmitted to a TV-like monitor so that the body part and its motion can be seen in detail. This video is very helpful in monitoring and guiding procedures and is used as an imaging tool to help diagnose body functions such as swallowing.
