What is Fluoroscopy?

Fluoroscopy technology allows doctors to see real-time, moving x-ray pictures inside your body.

Fluroscopy is used for diagnosis and treatment. It can been used for:

  • Digestive system imaging - barium swallows, barium enemas
  • Orthopaedic surgery
  • Angiography (looking at blood vessels)
  • PICC (peripherally inserted central catheter) placement
  • Urological surgery
