Definition of Fluoroscopy

Fluoroscopy: An x-ray procedure that makes it possible to see internal organs in motion.

Fluoroscopy uses x-ray to produce real-time video images. After the x-rays pass through the patient, instead of using film, they are captured by a device called an image intensifier and converted into light. The light is then captured by a TV camera and displayed on a video monitor.
