How to Prepare
After scheduling your appointment, you’ll receive instructions on how to get ready for your specific test. You may need to:

- Tell the technologist if you have any allergies
What to Expect
You may need to swallow or receive an injection of a small amount of contrast dye to make part of your body show up better on the fluoroscopy machine. Your care team will move you into position on the fluoroscopy table for the procedure.
We’ll send a report with your results to the doctor who ordered fluoroscopy. Expect a call from your doctor’s office to discuss the results and next steps.
