Fatima Memorial Hospital offers Fluoroscopy service which is a digital imaging technique that takes real time (live) moving images of patients’ internal structures using X-rays (radiation). The fluoroscope is a flat table with a camera that pulls over the patient and creates a tunnel. The radiologist or technologist moves the camera up and down to best see the area being examined.
Patients will be used, to best show the area being studied. The image shows on a screen. The room given X-ray contrast or air will be dim to allow the images to be seen with more detail. During the test, the patient may hear some noises from the machine.
