X-ray and fluoroscopy


  • What is fluoroscopy?   

    Fluoroscopy can be compared to an X-ray "movie." It is an imaging technique that sends a continuous X-ray beam through the body part being examined.
  • What are X-rays and what do they do?   

    X-rays are a form of electro-magnetic energy, like light or radio waves, just of a different frequency. X-rays allow a certified technologist to produce ‘pictures’ of internal structures. The radiologist can then view these on a special high-resolution (HD) computer. X-rays provide valuable information about your health and making correct diagnosis.
  • Are X-rays safe?   
    Radiation exposure during an X-ray is the equivalent to between a few days and a few years of exposure to natural radiation from the environment, meaning it is fairly low risk. After 100 years of research, it has been impossible to prove that low-dose X-rays, like those used in radiology, causes cancer.
