FLOUROSCOPY

Fluoroscopy is an imaging examination that uses x-rays to examine a specific part of the body. It differs from a conventional x-ray in that the images are obtained using a special image receptor that creates a “moving picture” of the body part being examined in real time, rather than just a still image.


Examinations like Barium Swallows, Upper GI (UGI), or Small Bowel (SBFT) Studies, Barium Enema (BE) Cystograms and Voiding Cystourethrograms (VCUG) Hysterosalpingograms (HSG), Phlebograms and Arthrograms are covered with the flouroscopy.
