How should I prepare for my Fluoroscopy?
Many studies are performed utilizing fluoroscopy, including but not limited to:
Preparation varies depending on the type of study performed. Upper GI requires an empty stomach, whereas a barium enema requires a special colon prep. Your physician will provide you with detailed prep instructions at the time your test is scheduled. You should inform your physician about any recent illnesses or other medical conditions, as well as allergies you might have to medications. Women should always inform the technologist if there is any possibility that they are pregnant.
