This is an x-ray procedure used to look at different body systems. It uses x-ray dye to show the body part we need to see.

After passing through the body the x-ray beam is viewed by a special camera which produces a moving picture on a TV screen. This lets us watch the body as it works and the radiologist or radiographer performing the examination can take snapshot or moving images.

It also helps other health care practitioners with their patients, such as speech and language therapists working with patients who are having difficulty swallowing.
