Digital fluoroscopy is a form of x-ray used to examine tissues and deep body structures.  There are procedures done with digital fluoroscopy which may require the patient to drink a safe liquid called barium. The procedure is often used to look at the internal organs that play a part in swallowing and digestion.  There are other tests in which digital fluoroscopy may be used, your provider would know best which test is necessary for you.
