Explanation of Test:
Fluoroscopy is a type of medical imaging that shows a continuous x-ray image on a monitor, much like an x-ray movie. Exams such as an upper gastrointestinal series to examine the esophagus, stomach and small intestine, or a barium enema to examine the colon, or the reproductive system might be performed. Depending on the exam, you may be required to drink barium.
