Fluoroscopy is a diagnostic test that uses a continuous beam of X-rays to follow movement in the body. The images resulting from fluoroscopy are displayed on a video monitor.

Fluoroscopy is often used to observe the digestive tract in procedures such as upper gastrointestinal tract X-ray, small bowel series and barium enemas.

Fluoroscopy may be used alone as a diagnostic procedure, or may be used in conjunction with other diagnostic or therapeutic media or procedures.

One of our featured procedures is upper gastrointestinal tract radiography, also called an Upper GI, which is an X-ray examination of the pharynx, esophagus, stomach and the first part of the small intestine (also known as the duodenum). It uses a special form of X-ray called fluoroscopy and an orally ingested contrast medium called barium.
