Fluoroscopy

A fluoroscopy is an advanced imaging technology used to provide “real time” X-ray images on a monitor. Using a contrasting agent, we are able to monitor the movement of a body part by passing an X-ray beam over the targeted area. The specialized computer software captures approximately 25-30 images of the body per second, allowing us to view the continuous movement of the contrasting agent through the body. This assists in accurate diagnosis and treatment planning of a number of conditions and diseases that affect various parts of the body, including the GI tract, heart and veins, just to name a few.
