Continue reading for more information about how this diagnostic technique works and how we use it to give you the best possible treatment for pain management.

Video Fluoroscopy:

fluoroscope projects X-rays onto a fluorescent screen, allowing them to be viewed in real time. Recently, because of rapid improvement in television and video technology, it has become possible to record these images on computer monitors for closer evaluation. Not only does video fluoroscopy provide images more quickly than traditional X-rays, it also allows doctors to observe an area in motion to look for damage or improper functioning.

Video fluoroscopy provides clear images of soft tissue, allowing doctors to detect injuries like whiplash that do not damage bones but can still cause severe pain and mobility difficulties. Video fluoroscopy has all the advantages of traditional X-rays and it produces images that are viewable immediately.

Diagnostic Capabilities of Video Fluoroscopy:

At Dynamic Health and Pain Management, we use video fluoroscopy as a diagnostic tool to allow us to view the full extent of your injuries. This technology provides clear, high-contrast images almost instantly. Video images of your injured or strained tissue in motion allow us to see any disrupted functioning, like joints that may have become misaligned. These video X-rays give us a clear, comprehensive view of your injury, providing insight into how we can effectively relieve your pain.
