X-rays are used to look for bone fractures, tumors and more. The X-ray beam is passed through a part of your body and is captured on the other side, showing an image of your bones and other internal structures.
Fluoroscopy is a type of X-ray that produces a “movie” rather than a static image. It uses a continuous X-ray beam and is transmitted to a monitor to show a body part in motion. For example, it allows your doctor to see the structure of your heart and to also see your heart pumping.
