Fluoroscopy is a study of body structures that have motion. A continuous X-ray beam is passed through the organ examined. The beam is transmitted to a monitor so that the organ and its motion can be seen in detail like a movie.
It enables doctors to investigate many systems, including the skeletal, digestive, urinary, respiratory, and reproductive systems. Fluoroscopy may be performed to evaluate specific areas of the body, including the bones, muscles, and joints, as well as solid organs, such as the heart, lung, or kidneys.
Other related procedures that may be used to diagnose diseases are myelography, Barium Swallow, meal and Enema, Hysterosalpingography (HSG), Cystography and arthrography.
