About MBS Imaging

MBS Imaging was founded in 2009 by a group of physicians to solve the costly and inconvenient problem of sending patients to the hospital for instrumental dysphagia evaluations.

MBS Imaging provides video and endoscopic swallowing evaluations to over 250 Nursing Homes around Chicagoland. We are able to provide our unique service to SNFs, Assisted Living, CCRCs, private clinics, and even at a patient's home!
