Fluoroscopy is a radiological technique which gives a ‘real-time’ video images on television monitors. It is useful for seeing dynamic bodily functions, such as the swallowing action. We use a range of dyes which can be drunk or introduced through a variety of catheters depending on the part of the body being examined.
You may need to take special preparation prior to the examination and we may ask you to follow other instructions after the test.
