Fluoroscopy is a study of moving body structures, similar to an X-ray "movie." A continuous X-ray beam is passed through the body part being examined, then transmitted to a monitor so the movement of a body part can be seen in detail.

Fluoroscopy, as an imaging tool, allows healthcare providers to look at many body systems, including the skeletal, digestive, urinary, cardiovascular, respiratory, and reproductive systems. It can also be used to evaluate specific areas of the body, such as bones, bowel, muscles, heart vessels, and joints.
