Our swallow study procedure was created to allow you the utmost comfort, care, and convenience.
No one likes participating in medical tests or studies because they often are long, inconvenient, and invasive. Here at TwinCity Medical Mobile, we work hard to make our swallow study procedure as quick, easy, comfortable, and convenient as possible for our patients in the Hickory, North Carolina area.
Our swallow study procedure will begin with you consuming a beverage that contains a small portion of barium. We will then ask you to lie down on a tilting exam table so we can use x-rays to track the barium as you swallow. This will allow us to identify any issues or abnormalities during the process.
Along with going to great measures to make our swallow study procedure quick and painless, we also invite you to bring a companion who can be there with you inside the van as you take your test. This way, your test can make you feel just a little bit more normal and more comfortable.
Once we have completed our swallow study procedure, you are free to leave because the rest will involve simply sending your results in a report to the appropriate doctors, therapists, etc. We will be recording your results via DVR, so they will reach your doctors in the quickest manner possible. That way, you shouldn’t need to wait too long for a proper diagnosis and a plan of action to relieve your symptoms of dysphagia.
We value your time and comfort, so we will work hard to ensure our swallow study procedure allows for your utmost comfort and convenience. Learn more about the procedure when you give us a call today.
