Fluoroscopy is a diagnostic test that uses a continuous beam of X-rays to follow movement in the body. The images resulting from fluoroscopy are displayed on a video monitor.
Fluoroscopy is often used to observe the digestive tract in procedures such as upper gastrointestinal tract X-ray, small bowel series and barium enemas.
Upper gastrointestinal tract radiography, also called an upper GI, is an X-ray examination of the pharynx, esophagus, stomach and the first part of the small intestine (also known as the duodenum) that uses a special form of X-ray called fluoroscopy and an orally ingested contrast medium called barium.
Fluoroscopy studies are performed at the following locations:
- Crozer-Chester Medical Center
- Delaware County Memorial Hospital
- Springfield Hospital
- Taylor Hospital
- Media Medical Imaging
- Crozer Medical Plaza at Brinton Lake
