Modified Barium Swallow Study
A well recognized method of observing the complete function of a swallow from the mouth to the esophagus, also known as the video-fluoroscopic swallow study. This evaluation is non-invasive and performed within the comfort of our mobile imaging clinic. Patients sit down and take a few bites and sips of various food items and drinks mixed with a little barium contrast. This method is ideal for elderly and geriatric patients.
Fiberoptic Endoscopic Swallow Study
A complementary study to the Modified Barium Swallow Study. Ideal for bed bound, trach & vent patients, patients with vocal disturbances, or severely ill patients. This test is performed at bedside and requires the patient to be able to tolerate having a small scope with a camera passed through their nose as they eat and drink common food items.
