It’s a type of medical imaging that allows a radiologist to look at a patient’s internal organs through the use of x-rays to produce video images in real-time. This happens when X-rays are passed through the body and captured by an image intensifier which converters it into light so then they can be captured by a camera and displayed on a monitor.
Fluoroscopy is an imaging modality which enables doctors to look at many body parts including the digestive, urinary, and reproductive systems to diagnose different diseases.

How is the procedure performed?

Fluoroscopy include several procedures with includes Barium studies for the digestive system, Hysterosalpingography (HSG)for the uterus and tubes and Urethrogram for the urethra.

How safe is Fluoroscopy examination?

Like other x-ray procedures, fluoroscopy carries some risks. The radiation dose received by the patient varies depending on the individual procedure. However, they are kept to a minimal by performing fluoroscopy with the lowest acceptable exposure for the shortest possible time necessary.

When will I get my results?

The radiologist will examine the images and will write a signed report to your referring doctor who will then discuss the results with you.
