Fluoroscopy is “live x-ray”. This allows your doctor to evaluate bones and joints under motion. Fluoroscopy is very useful in evaluating any type of trauma to the foot and ankle. Also, when injections are necessary, fluoroscopy allows for the precise placement of the medication with far less discomfort.
