The beginning of fluoroscopy can be taken way back in the 90s when there wasn’t much technology. This was all discovered by Rontgen, who noticed a fluorescing screen during the exposure to what was later called x-ray. Back then many people where wrong after coming up with conclusions that fluoroscopy would completely replace x-ray after knowing that in fluoroscopy there was movement available in the process. In fluoroscopy, a machine is used. One that can use either a continuous beam or it can do a pulsing x-ray beam. This machine used in fluoroscopy generates a high amount of electricity that creates a steam of electrons that are then transferred to the tungsten target making the structure of the tungsten stop the electrons and causing x-ray energy. Then the energy passes through the tube and sends it against the patient body part. These energy waves can pass through the body and create images of the anatomy of the inside of the body. As that is been done the equipment makes an image in a video format using two dimensional patterns of light. Thanks to all this we are able to see or obtain an image in video format of our inside organs. Beside this machine there is also mobile fluoroscopy, which is better in the way that you are able to move it around and take it anywhere you want. Thanks to how fast technology is moving fluoroscopy equipment are getting better and better, it also improves the accommodation of all the physicians that use any type of fluoroscopy equipment. How this work is really easy, all physicians who use this resource are able to obtain a very good accurate reading of what they are looking for, meaning a disease, abnormal movement, or any damage joints.
Since the beginning of fluoroscopy many opinions where wrong about how fluoroscopy was going to replace the diagnostics of x-ray. But after research and technology moved on everyone started noticing that they were wrong about their opinions. Knowing that radiographic diagnostics have better...
