Disease relevance of Fluoroscopy

  • Thorough examination of both anteroposterior and lateral chest roentgenograms and barium gastrointestinal series may provide positive diagnosis of anterior diaphragmatic hernia, and fluoroscopy after induced pneumoperitoneum may establish its pericardial involvement [1].
  • A digital video subtraction fluoroscopy system can visualize the actual site of the fistula directly and dynamically using only a small amount of metrizamide [2].
  • After controlling the other blood-draining routes with a microcoil or absolute ethanol, or both, we injected 5% ethanolamine oleate with iopamidol into the gastric varices under fluoroscopy [3].
  • Time to cross stenoses was 200 +/- 21 and 233 +/- 22 seconds, procedural time was 21 +/- 1.3 and 21 +/- 1.0 minutes, fluoroscopy time was 6.7 +/- 0.4 and 7.1 +/- 0.4 minutes, contrast used was 89.0 +/- 4.2 and 84.0 +/- 3.5 ml, and number of cine runs was 5.9 +/- 3.0 and 6.3 +/- 3.4 in the FW and OW systems, respectively [4].
  • We report the accidental intracord injection of steroid solution during epidural block using fluoroscopy in a conscious patient, which caused paraplegia [5].

High impact information on Fluoroscopy


Chemical compound and disease context of Fluoroscopy

  • Using a flow-guided, balloon-tipped microcatheter, we catheterize the fistula itself, verify balloon entry into the fistula with fluoroscopy and x-ray films, and then infuse the tissue adhesive isobutyl-2-cyanoacrylate with careful fluoroscopic control [11].
  • Intussusception is a common pediatric condition in China. Hydrostatic reduction with barium sulfate or pneumatic reduction using air and fluoroscopy has become the standard method in most centers throughout the world [12].
  • CONCLUSIONS: Percutaneous ablation using acetic acid using CT fluoroscopy guidance may be considered as a short term efficient, low risk treatment and can be applied even in patients with ascites or severe hemostatic abnormalities [13].
  • A comparison was made of the efficacy of ultrasound guided Hartmann's solution hydrostatic reduction on 23 patients (US group) with the same number of consecutive patients in whom hydrostatic reduction was done by barium enema (BE group) under fluoroscopy for childhood intussusception [14].
  • Gadolinium-enhanced MR fluoroscopy images were obtained in 24 patients with 28 hepatic hemangiomas [15].

Anatomical context of Fluoroscopy


Associations of Fluoroscopy with chemical compounds

  • Although it entails a radiation hazard risk, the use of fluoroscopy during caudal epidural steroid injection has increased to help place the medication more accurately and allowed physicians to maximize the procedure's therapeutic success rate [25].
  • Metrizamide myelography in cervical spine trauma: a modified technique using lateral fluoroscopy [26].
  • The absence of iron and flavin was also confirmed by atomic absorption, chemical analysis, and fluoroscopy, respectively [27].
  • Percutaneous cervical cordotomy and subarachnoid phenol block using fluoroscopy in pain control of costopleural syndrome [28].
  • Fluoroscopy was performed in four different positions: prone in alpha cradle, prone with an aquaplast mold, supine on a flat table, and supine with a false table under the buttocks [29].

Gene context of Fluoroscopy

  • ROS formation was determined by DCF fluoroscopy and MMP-2 activity by zymography [30].
  • Percutaneous vertebroplasty using polymethylmethacrylate was performed at three vertebral bodies (L2, L1, and T11) using careful techniques including venography, large cannula, proper preparation and amount of polymethylmethacrylate, and continuous visualization with fluoroscopy [31].
  • Methods to administer such agents to the celiac ganglion include CT imaging, percutaneous ultrasound, fluoroscopy, endoscopic ultrasound, or surgery (ganglionectomy) [32].
  • RESULTS: Radiation exposure was higher in the MVP group, with fluoroscopy times of 35.3 +/- 21 min versus 20.9 +/- 15 min in controls [33].
  • The median fluoroscopy time was 13.5 min (range 6.3 to 47) [34].
