What is the purpose of a Fluoroscopy in medicine/health field?

Fluoroscopy is a type of medical imaging that shows a continuous x-ray image on a monitor, much like an x-ray video. This instrument is used to see the movement of organs, such as stomach, intestines, etc in detail and diagnose any problems or diseases detected. 

  Fluoroscopy may be used to guide biopsies or remove fluid from the chest or abdomen. Fluoroscopy is also used to study blood vessels of the heart and brain, to see if there are any clog or cholesterol in the arteries, arterioles, etc.
