Fluoroscopy is a test that uses a steady beam of x-rays to look at parts of organs and movement within the body. Using fluoroscopy, physicians can view blood moving through a blood vessel or food moving through the stomach and intestines.
Fluoroscopy assists physicians in these procedures:
At the time your appointment is scheduled, you will be instructed to go to the Main Hospital or the Sweetwater Pavilion. When you enter, go to the Information Desk and our staff will gladly direct you from there.
Arrival times vary based on the type of test that will be performed. If you are not sure of your time of arrival, please call 281-274-7170 to clarify for your specific test.
Fluoroscopy may be part of an examination or procedure that is done on either an outpatient or inpatient basis. The specific type of procedure or examination being done will determine whether any preparation prior to the procedure is required. Your physician will notify you of any pre-procedure instructions. If you do not have your pre-procedure instructions, please call 281-274-7170.
Fluoroscopy procedures generally follow this process:
Discomfort during fluoroscopy exams is dependent upon which type of exam is being performed. Consult with your physician regarding your specific exam.
A board certified radiologist will interpret your exam. Legally, the technologist cannot interpret or discuss what they are viewing while performing the exam. A report with the results will be sent to your physician within two to three business days. Please check with your physician’s office to discuss the results.
