Fluoroscopy is an x-ray procedure that allows direct observation of the movement of joints, organs, and entire body systems in real time.
During a fluoroscopy procedure, the patient is positioned so that the body part to be viewed is between an x-ray tube and a fluorescent screen. X-rays from the tube pass through the body and project the bones and organs as images on the screen. The image is transmitted to a computer monitor so the movement of a body part, or of a contrast agent through the body, can be visualized.
SJRA’s registered technologists have the benefit of the latest equipment, including digital radiography, to insure low dose, high quality x-rays.
