Important Things to Know About Fluoroscopy
Using a fluoroscopy procedure, the technologist or radiologist can evaluate areas of the body while it is in motion. Fluoroscopy allows doctors to see areas such as digestive, urinary, skeletal, and reproductive systems. Fluoroscopy may also be used to evaluate areas such as muscles, joints, and organs.
Fluoroscopy may be used alone or in combination with other diagnostic or therapy procedures. A contrast dye may be used. The procedure varies based on the body area being examined.
