Fluoroscopy is a type of medical imaging that shows a continuous X-ray image on a monitor, much like an x-ray movie.
During a fluoroscopy procedure, an x-ray beam is passed through the body. The image is transmitted to a monitor so the movement of a body part or of an instrument or contrast agent through the body can be seen in detail and in different angles.
Fluoroscopy procedures can be performed to help diagnose a disease or to guide physicians during certain treatment/operating procedures. Today, fluoroscopy is mainly used in the operating theatre to help the surgeons during their musculoskeletal procedures. Ask your physician about whether or not he will be employing x-ray during your procedure. If so, one of our technologists will be present in the operating theatre and will take the pictures.
