Fluoroscopy is a procedure performed by a radiologist to view tissues and organs in motion. During the procedure, a continuous X-ray beam is emitted through the part of the body being examined. X-ray contrast agents, such as barium or iodine, are used to better visualize the internal organs or specific areas of the body. Types of fluoroscopy procedures include:
Antegrade / Retrograde Pyelogram
Barium Enema (single or double contrast)
Barium Swallow Oesophagus
Gastrograffin Enema, follow through, meal or swallow
Intra venous pyelogram (Non-Ionic or limited study)
Small Bowel Enema
Sialogram (Parotid / submandibular) (Bilateral or uni)
Urethrogram (micturating / descending / retrograde)
Nasogastric and Nasojejunal tube insertion
Fluoro for misc. use
