Fluoroscopy and cineradiography are diagnostic tools used to examine spinal structures at rest and during:
- Movement (biomechanics)
- Exams for musculoskeletal injury, 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 or digitally 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. Using this technology, a physician can view spinal structures, such as joints and discs, in motion and interacting together.
