Fluoroscopy is a non-invasive procedure which uses x-rays to help capture and monitor video images of specific parts of the body while they are in motion.
Animal Imaging’s new radiology suite uses fluoroscopy for flow studies using barium contrast, myelograms, and for studies where changes over time are important –as with collapsing tracheas. Organic iodine contrasting agents are used for special vascular urine flow studies.
Fluoroscopy facilitates the placement of tracheal stents. These expanding Nitinol stents are helpful in managing select collapsing trachea cases.
