A fluoroscope is a type of X-ray machine that combines an X-ray source and a fluorescent screen to enable real-time observation of an organ while it is functioning. Our specialists at Sacramento Veterinary Referral Center often use fluoroscopy during surgical procedures either to watch the movement of joints or to guide the placement of prostheses or needles.
