Understanding Medical Tests: Fluoroscopy and Cineradiography

Fluoroscopy and cineradiography are diagnostic tools used to examine spinal structures at rest and during:

  • Movement (biomechanics)
  • Musculoskeletal injury examination, such as whiplash
  • Diagnostic procedures, such as discography or myelography
  • Vertebroplasty treatment of vertebral compression fracture
  • Spinal injection therapies
  • Postoperative evaluation of spinal fusion

This technology combines conventional fluoroscopy, or x-ray, with video making capabilities. Images are recorded on tape and can be replayed in real time, slow motion, or one frame at a time (freeze frame).

Either test can reveal more about a musculoskeletal injury, such as whiplash, than a static or plain x-ray. For example, your doctor can view spinal structures, such as joints, ligaments, and discs moving together.
