Diagnostic Imaging Services recently completed the installation of updated fluoroscopy technology at our East Bank location in Metairie. Fluoroscopy pays a pivotal role in medical imaging, being integral in studies such as arthrograms and hysterosalpingograms.
Fluoroscopy is a study of moving body structures. It’s much like an x-ray video and is often done while a contrast dye moves through the part of the body being examined. A continuous x-ray beam is passed through the body part and sent to a video monitor so that the body part and its motion can be seen in detail.
Fluoroscopy, as an imaging tool, enables physicians to look at many body systems, including the skeletal, digestive, urinary, respiratory, and reproductive systems.
Fluoroscopy may be performed to evaluate specific areas of the body, including the bones, muscles, and joints, as well as solid organs, such as the heart, lung, or kidneys.
