Not much: Fluoroscopy is used to image the large bowel during the performance of barium enema . Single contrast enmea uses barium with out the addition of air which is called double contrast enema. Fluoroscopy involves the use of xrays. Images are taken of the large bowel during fluoroscopy for documentation of any pathology and normal anatomy.
