Fluoroscopy uses a method similar to X-ray (radiography) to obtain images. However, in fluoroscopy moving pictures are obtained. This is useful to study functions within the body such as swallowing, digestion and blood flow. Most fluoroscopic studies involve contrast. Contrast is a liquid with a different density than body tissues that highlights areas of the body that are of interest and makes them stand out from areas around them.
