Fluoroscopy is a special x-ray technique that produces real-time images on a television monitor.
With fluoroscopy, contrast material is injected into a blood vessel.
Fluoroscopy is also used to help guide catheters into place in the heart during cardiac catheterization or to guide an endoscope during endoscopic surgery.
The initial workers used fluoroscopy often with the hooded fluorescent screen.
