Fluoroscopy

Sometimes doctors need to see more than a still image to diagnose or treat a problem. Fluoroscopy is a test that uses a steady beam of x-rays (like a movie) to look at parts of the body and movement within the body, such as blood moving through a blood vessel. Fluoroscopy can also be used to help find a foreign object in the body, position a needle for a medical procedure, or realign a broken bone. A dye (contrast material) that shows up on fluoroscopy can be put in a vein (N) or swallowed so vessels or organs show up clearly.
