Fluoroscopy

Fluoroscopy is an imaging technique which uses x-rays to take images of the body in real time that can be viewed on a monitor and digitally recorded. This is especially useful for guiding a variety of diagnostic and interventional procedures.

Applications include examinations of the digestive tract (barium meal, barium enema), reproductive organs and the urinary system (genito-urinary system).

In most fluoroscopy procedures radiographic contrast agents are used to highlight organs that normally can only be seen as shadows on a plain radiographs. Contrast agents include barium, air, and iodinated contrast media.
