Fluoroscopy can be thought of as a video x-ray. This usually involves the administration of a contrast medium (dye) into the body part of interest. The most common contrast for the stomach, colon and small intestine is barium sulphate.
Fluoroscopy examinations include:
• Barium Meal
• Barium Swallow
• Barium Enema
• IVP (Intravenous Pyelogram/Urogram)
• HSG (Hysterosalpingogram)
• MCUG (Micturating Cystourethrogram)
