Get a proper diagnosis for dysphagia with our swallow procedure.
When a patient shows signs of dysphagia, or a swallowing disorder, their doctor or speech therapist will often order a swallow procedure. Normally, these procedures may be rather inconvenient and out of the way for the patient and their doctor because they have to travel to a different facility to get the test performed. But here at TwinCity Medical Mobile, we offer mobile modified barium swallow procedures for nursing homes and other care centers in the Hickory, North Carolina area.
The best part about our swallow procedure is that you and/or your patients never have to spend already limited energy and time to go out to be tested at an outside medical facility. Instead, we will come to you in our traveling medical van and allow our speech pathologist to perform the test.
Our modified barium swallow procedure is sure to allow for accurate diagnoses and therapy solutions to combat dysphagia. The modified barium swallow procedure involves the patient consuming food or a beverage that has a small portion of barium in it so it can be tracked via x-ray as the patient swallows. With this procedure, we are able to identify any issues or oddities in any of the three stages of swallowing. From there, the speech pathologist or therapist can properly diagnose the patient and determine the proper treatment. Possible treatment plans may include diet changes or other swallowing therapy.
Your patients are sure to get the proper diagnosis for their dysphagia or otherwise when you choose our modified barium swallow procedure. Give us a call to order the procedure today, and we will bring the test to you.
