Think of fluoroscopy like a video x-ray. With the help of a contrast agent like barium (which helps illuminate physical structures when introduced into the patient’s body), fluoroscopy gives doctors a real-time view of bodily systems at work. The procedure is especially helpful in diagnosing issues of the upper and lower gastrointestinal tract.
