We want to make your swallow study procedure in Gastonia as efficient and comfortable as possible.
At TwinCity Medical Mobile, we are committed to providing our patients with a high level of care, and our medical mobile services are trusted by facilities throughout the Gastonia, North Carolina area. If your physician has ordered a Modified Barium Swallow test, there are several things you can expect during the swallow study procedure.
First, you may have to avoid eating for a few hours before your appointment to ensure your results are as accurate as possible. After you come on board our state-of-the-art medical van, we will ask you to drink a barium solution. Once you do this, we will have you lie down on a tilting table, so we can take X-rays of your mouth, esophagus, and stomach. Overall, this process takes approximately 30 minutes, and you are free to leave our van as soon as we are done with the X-rays.
After the completion of your swallow study procedure, we will record the results on DVR. This way, we can easily provide a copy to you, your family members, your treating physician, or anyone else who needs them. Know that you can also bring a family member or a friend with you to the procedure to provide support.
