What is Fluroscopy?

fluoroscopyFluoroscopy or fluoroscopic screening enables radiologists to visualise x-ray images in real-time (as they are happening) on a television monitor.

Fluoroscopy is a popular technique used to perform a variety of different x-rays.

The radiologist uses the x-ray images displayed on the monitor to guide the examination and to position the region to obtain "spot" films.

The spot films provide more detail than is available on the monitor and act as a permanent record of the examination.
