Fluoroscopy is a specialized form of x-ray that uses a fluoroscope to rapidly create images to capture motion. Our specialty trained radiologists use fluoroscopy to guide diagnostic and therapeutic procedures and injections.
Fluoroscopy can display motion and there are specific examinations and certain procedures where motion assessment is required.
Information on some of these procedures is available to you. Northeast Radiology is a member of both the American College of Radiology (ACR®) and the Radiology Society of North America (RSNA®). These two premier organizations have jointly developed RadiologyInfo.org as the radiology information resource for patients.
RadiologyInfo.org provides a wealth of useful information. It tells you how various fluoroscopy procedures are performed. It also addresses what you may experience and how to prepare for the exams. This website describes 7 of the more common fluoroscopy procedures and is updated frequently with new information.
All material on the RadiologyInfo.org website is reviewed and approved by experts in the field of radiology from the ACR® and RSNA®, as well as other professional radiology organizations. This website is updated frequently with new information.
