Fluoroscopy is an imaging technique that uses X-rays to obtain real-time moving images of the internal structures of a patient through the use of a fluoroscope. Fluoroscopy makes it possible to see internal organs in motion. In its simplest form, a fluoroscope consists of an X-ray source and fluorescent screen between which a patient is placed. Fluoroscopy can be used to guide procedures such as a joint injection or myelogram. It is also often used with barium or other contrast to see the anatomy and movement of the GI tract/intestines in real time.
