Our approach to modified barium swallow test procedures benefits patients in a wide range of facilities in the High Point area.
Today, dysphagia is often diagnosed through modified barium swallow tests. During a modified barium swallow test, the patient consumes a solution containing barium, and the way the patient swallows is tracked via x-ray. Here at TwinCity Medical Mobile, we conduct modified barium swallow tests aboard our state-of-the-art medical mobile van on patients who struggle with dysphagia after the test is ordered by a treating physician.
One of the benefits of having a modified barium swallow test performed is that these procedures objectively diagnose issues with aspiration and swallowing, and they document any incidences of aspiration that occur during the swallowing process. The results of a modified barium swallow test can determine if a patient needs a modified diet, if an alternate route of nutrition is required, and the best method to help a patient struggling with a swallowing disorder. These tests can also help speech-language pathologists determine if various forms of swallowing therapy are needed.
Our testing services are provided at nursing homes, independent care facilities, assisted living facilities, and a wide range of other facilities throughout the High Point, North Carolina area. We believe coming directly to our patients is beneficial because patients do not experience the stress and inconvenience that comes from going to a hospital or outpatient facility for testing, and they can be evaluated in a comfortable, familiar environment.
We are driven to provide compassionate, convenient care to our patients. If you have any questions about our approach to modified barium swallow tests, contact us at TwinCity Medical Mobile today!
