A Modified Barium Swallow Study is an accurate evaluation of the way a person swallows. Fluoroscopic (live moving images) and x-rays are taken while the patient swallows different consistencies of food and liquids which contain barium as a contrast material. MBS studies allow our clinicians to make the proper assessment of your swallowing difficulty (dysphagia) which may include aspiration (food or liquids entering the windpipe and reaching the level below the vocal cords).
After the evaluation is complete, our speech-language pathologist analyzes the results and interprets their findings. If necessary they will make diet and therapy recommendations to you in the form of a “plan of care”. SFS now offers MBS studies… Please call to inquire about this service: (702) 979-4268 Varied and specialized therapy services, a modern and upgraded location, adorable facility puppies, and a staff of highly certified clinicians…how could you argue- We’re #NotYourAverageClinic
