X-Ray & Fluoroscopy

Radiography and Fluoroscopy

X-rays, also known as Radiography, are the fastest and easiest way for a radiologist to view images of your body. Routine x-rays include images of the chest, abdomen, pelvis, and bones. Fluoroscopy is a study of moving body structures, such as digestive functions, in a live, movie-like sequence. It is a safe and generally non-invasive procedure. 

Modern x-ray techniques use a small amount of x-rays and have very tightly controlled x-ray beams. Special care is taken during x-ray examinations to ensure maximum safety for the patient. Women should always inform their physician and x-ray technologist if there is any possibility that they are pregnant.

Your X-Ray or
Fluoroscopy Exam.

Generally, no preparation is required for general x-ray. Images may be captured standing up or lying on the x-ray table. Preparation for fluoroscopy depends on the type of exam that is performed. 

Depending on the type of fluoroscopic exam, a patient will be positioned next to the x-ray equipment standing up and/or lying down. The patient may be be asked to switch positions during the exam. Contrast agents used during a fluoroscopy exam may be introduced to the body through injections, swallowing, or in select cases, an enema. Once the fluoroscopy or x-ray study is complete, a patient may resume normal activity. Drinking fluids may be encouraged following a fluoroscopy study to help any contrast material move through the body
