X-Ray and Fluoroscopy

Fluoroscopy is a dynamic/real-time evaluation of the body utilizing state-of-the-art digital imaging equipment. 

 

Our radiologists have many years of experience using fluoroscopy to diagnose a wide variety of disorders and to guide procedures.

 

Your doctor may be sending you for a diagnostic evaluation of the gastrointestinal tract or possibly for the injection of contrast into a joint in order to better diagnose small anatomic structures with MRI or CT.  The types of exams and procedures that we perform include:

 

  • Esophagram to evaluate the esophagus

  • GI series to evaluate the stomach and possibly the small bowel

  • Barium enema to evaluate the colon.

  • Arthrogram to inject dye into a joint for better visualization.

  • IVP to evaluate the kidneys, ureters and bladder

 

We also have digital x-ray equipment to perform diagnostic studies on the chest, abdomen and musculoskeletal parts of the body.  We are available during normal operating hours for walk-in appointments as needed.

Once scheduled for an x-ray, our office will call you and give you detailed instruction on how to prepare for your exam.
