Fluoroscopy

Fluoroscopy in St. Louis

Description

Fluoroscopy uses x-ray to produce real-time video images. After the x-rays pass through the patient they are captured by a device called an image intensifier and converted into light. The light is then captured by a TV camera and displayed on a video monitor for interpretation by a radiologist.  The radiologist uses fluoroscopy to watch what is going on inside the body during certain procedures and exams.
