Fluoroscopy

About Our Service

Because an X-ray will often only show us static images of your bones, sometimes we use a diagnostic procedure called fluoroscopy. This procedure uses a contrast dye to see moving surfaces of the soft tissues, like tendons, ligaments, muscles, cartilage and joint capsules. Fluroscopy allows doctors to look at many body systems, including skeletal, digestive, urinary, respiratory and reproductive.

In your procedure, you'll be given a contrast dye before being positioned on an X-ray table. A continuous X-ray beam is passed through the body part and transmitted to a video monitor. This X-ray "movie" is just the start of getting the best care to help you heal.
