Fluoroscopy

Our comprehensive fluoroscopy department provides diagnostic and interventional fluoroscopy procedures including barium enemas (BE), esophagrams, upper GI series and small bowel series.

 

What is Fluoroscopy?

 

Fluoroscopy is a safe and painless test that uses a continuous x-ray beam to create a sequence of images that are projected onto a computer monitor. This special x-ray technique makes it possible for physicians to view internal organs in motion by creating real time "x-ray movies." Still images are also captured and stored electronically on a computer. Most fluoroscopic exams require the use of a contrast material (usually barium) to better see the organs inside your body. 

 

How do I prepare?

 

All jewelry and any other metallic objects such as hearing aids, jeans with metal zippers, body piercings and removable dental work must be removed.  Wearing a sweatsuit with no metal may prevent you from having to change into a gown.
