Fluoroscopy, also called fluorography, is an x-ray technique that captures real-time images of a functioning organ inside the body. Unlike still x-rays, fluoroscopy makes it possible to view internal organs in motion.

The procedure involves a small x-ray device called a fluoroscope, which projects images of the inside of the body onto a video screen for viewing by the radiologists. A contrast dye that contains barium or iodine is typically used to improve visibility of the tissues and structures.
