Fluoroscopy is an x-ray procedure that makes it possible to see internal organs in motion.

We have a fluoroscopy room within the radiology department at Warrington Hospital. The majority of work undertaken is for gastro-intestinal examinations. These include:

  • Barium meals (x-ray examination of the stomach)
  • Barium swallows (x-ray examination of the oesophagus)
  • Small bowel meals (x-ray examination of the small intestine)
  • Water soluble contrast studies

In addition to these gastro-intestinal procedures, the service also performs:

  • Sinography (to reveal the path of an unhealed wound sinus)
  • Cystography (x-ray examination of the bladder)
  • Urethrography (x-ray examination of the uretha)
  • Dynamic joint imaging and pain injections
  • Sialography (x-ray examination of the salivary glands)
  • Hysterosalpinography (x-ray examination if the fallopian tubes)

Some examinations are performed jointly with Endoscopy. These are mainly investigations of biliary system. They are predominately therapeutic and are done to remove biliary stones and for the insertion of biliary stents. Other procedures include the insertion of oesophageal stents and also colonic stents.
