X-Ray images with fluoroscopy

Fluoroscopy is a type of imaging technique performed by a radiologist to better visualize organs and tissues. The examination uses an X-ray beam emitted through the body. Images are produced onto a detector or fluoroscopic screen and recorded by a camera, allowing radiologists and technicians to see real-time, moving images of internal organs and other structures on a monitor.


Fluoroscopy can be used to examine movement of joints in the skeletal system as well as the function of solid organs such as the digestive tract, kidneys, heart and lungs.
