A fluoroscopy machine produces a constant stream of X-rays so that it works in real time, enabling the doctor to view a changing image continuously and capture pictures of the body’s structures in motion.

Each fluoscopy examination will need specific preparation, sometimes involving a particular diet so please contact the imaging department if you have been referred for any of these special imaging procedures.
Fluoroscopy is available at the Cardiff Bay Hospital.
