Fluoroscopy shows a continuous X-ray image on a monitor, much like an X-ray movie. During a fluoroscopy procedure, an X-ray beam is passed through the body, and the resultant image is displayed on a monitor so the movement of a body part, an instrument or contrast agent (“X-ray dye”) through the body can be seen in detail.
