Q. What is X-Ray (Digital Radiography)?

Q. What is Fluoroscopy?

A. If you think of X-ray as a still picture, then fluoroscopy is a moving picture. Fluoroscopy is an imaging technique that uses contrast material and X-rays to visualize joints and internal organs in motion. An X-ray beam is passed through the area being examined and a Digital image is evaluated by the radiologist on a high resolution TV monitor.
