Fluoroscopy

flouroscopeFluoroscopy is a technology that allows radiologists to visualize and evaluate the function of certain internal structures in the body. Radiologists are able to view structures in real time on a digital monitor as "live" images are produced with a continuous beam of X-rays. Fluoroscopy has a wide variety of uses.

A very common application is in the evaluation of the intestinal tract. With the use of contrast materials such as barium, radiologists are able to identify diseases in organs such as the stomach and the bowels.
