Fluoroscopy is a method of visualizing internal structures by using x-rays to produce a moving, real-time picture. The continuous flow of x-rays gives us the ability to capture, monitor, replay, and manipulate video of a specific part of the body while it is in motion. At our Greenville hospital, we use a unit called a C-arm to obtain our fluoroscopic images. The C-arm also provides non-surgical options for certain ailments that previously required more invasive procedures.
Some of the fluoroscopic applications in veterinary medicine include minimally invasive fracture repair, intraluminal stenting for the treatment of tracheal collapse, urethral and colonic obstructive disease, vascular procedures, and contrast studies of the gastrointestinal tract.
Fluoroscopic technology enables us to provide your pet with the latest advances in veterinary medicine.These techniques result in decreased discomfort for your pet, a quicker recovery time, and less time spent in the hospital.
