Fluoroscopy

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.

The Fluoroscopy x-ray machine is a table, which can tilt, with an arm coming across which delivers or detects the x-rays. Within the room there will usually be either a radiologist and a radiographer or just a radiographer and sometimes a nurse.

Examples of fluoroscopy examinations are:

  • Arthrograms – studies of joints
  • Barium studies – imaging of the bowel and stomach
  • Nerve root studies - imaging of the discs and vertebrae in the spine
  • Videofluoroscopy – used to study the mechanism of swallowing
  • Urodynamics – investigations of the urinary system

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.
