Examination of an object, as the human body, by exposing it to the X rays and observing the shadow cast upon a fluorescent screen; cryptoscopy.
A special type of x-ray that allows the heart to be visualized.
X-ray imaging in involving a fluorescent screen, typically observed in real-time by a video camera, for motion X-rays.
a type of x-ray that uses pulsed x-ray beams to create moving images of working body structures
A â€œliveâ€ moving x-ray image that appears on a screen for the physician to view. This differs from x-rays that provide a film of the image. Fluoroscopy lights up extremely well for viewing radioactive seeds. It is used during implantation and postimplantation to view the placement and coverage of the seeds. Fluoroscopy views better than ultrasound.
a method used to view organ structure and function by passing X-rays through the body and monitoring the resulting image on a fluorescent screen
Fluoroscopy is a technique for continuous or intermittent x-ray monitoring. X-ray images may be viewed directly without taking and developing x-ray photographs. This allows observation of certain dynamic body processes and is useful in certain surgical and diagnostic procedures. The radiologist moves the screen up and down the patient's body and observes what is happening within selected parts of the body.
A method of visualizing internal organs by use of x-ray.
is a moving X-ray.
examination of body structures using a fluoroscope
An x-ray procedure which uses a fluoroscope to see internal organs in motion, commonly used to visualize blood vessels.
A technique where the patient is placed between an x-ray beam and a fluorescent screen. This allows movement at joints within the body to be observed on the screen.
a real-time X-ray image that is viewed on a monitor.
Use of x-rays to see images on a screen as opposed to x-ray film.
a form of x-ray that lets the physician see into your body during the examination.
An x-ray machine capable of producing both still images and â€œreal-timeâ€ motion of the joints or vertebrae. Often used to visualize intervertebral joint motion through flexion and extension of the neck or back or to place a syringe needle at a targeted site.
The production of a visible image on a fluorescent screen by X-rays and for direct viewing of the screen.
a study of moving body structures, similar to an x-ray "movie." A continuous x-ray beam is passed through the body part being examined, and is transmitted to a TV-like monitor so that the body part and its motion can be seen in detail.
Production of an image when x-rays strike a fluorescent screen.
Imaging technique that takes a real time "movie" of the body.
an X-ray technique that allows the doctor to observe how an organ performs its normal function; for example, how the esophagus works during swallowing.
(flur-os-ko-pE) Examination of the tissues and deep structures of the body by x-ray, using the fluoroscope.
Observing the internal body organs by x-ray studies
Examination of an internal structure by a continuous viewing of shadows formed by differential transmission of X-ray through the objects.
An x-ray procedure that makes it possible to see internal organs in motion.
an imaging device that uses x-ray or other radiation to view structures in the body in real time, or "live." Also called a C-arm.
A diagnostic procedure in which x-rays that have passed through the body are projected onto a screen, providing a continuous image of the body's internal structures.
Use of x-rays to see motion. This is usually captured on film as opposed to still x-rays captured on film. No listings
A radiologic technique in which a fluoroscope is used to visually examine the body or an organ. (A fluoroscope utilizes an X-ray tube and fluorescent screen, with the area to be viewed placed between the screen and the tube.) This immediate imaging, when coupled with an image intensifier, is invaluable in situations such as cardiac catheterization, thin needle biopsies of tumors, and localization of foreign bodies.
A radiologic procedure that functions like an X-ray TV camera image
Fluoroscopy is an imaging technique commonly used by physicians to obtain real-time images of the internal structures of a patient through the use of a fluoroscope. In its simplest form, a fluoroscope consists of an x-ray source and fluorescent screen between which a patient is placed. However, modern fluoroscopes couple the screen to an x-ray image intensifier and CCD video camera allowing the images to be played and recorded on a monitor.
