Fluoroscopy is a continuous series of xrays that allows us to image the body while it is in motion. It essentially produces a moving xray video that allows us to assess the function of organs in real time and identify abnormalities that may not be apparent on a traditional radiograph.
- We use fluoroscopy to investigate specific problems such as:
- A swallowing study looking at oesophageal motility disorders, strictures or reflux
- Airway Examinations looking at evidence of collapsing trachea or breathing difficulties.
- Examining the flow of blood through abnormal vessels in the body.
- Minimally invasive repair of fractures with accurate placement of implants in real time.
