What is a fluoroscopy examination?
A fluoroscopy unit uses x-rays and an Image Intensifier to produce ‘real time’ 2D images and can function to create real time video.
We have been using our fluoroscopy unit to aid in the reduction of fractures (bone setting). The providers have had great success with treating fractures conservatively with setting and casting that might have required surgery. The fluoroscopy unit provides us with the technology to obtain images during the setting process, allowing us to fine tune the reduction.
OSS Burbank is committed to high-level care and uses the latest technology to adhere to conservative treatment principles and evidence based medicine protocols.
