Fluoroscopy is a medical imaging technique that uses x-rays to produce a real time moving image of a body structure. It is often used to accurately place needles for procedures and to track the progression of contrast through a body structure or system, like the urinary tract. I believe that the contrast media used for cystography is iodine based. It is not radioactive. Often the fluoroscopic procedure will be pulsed to reduce radiation exposure. You can think of fluoroscopy as an x-Ray movie as opposed to a typical x-ray still picture.
