After we receive a contract from a speech therapist indicating that a modified barium swallow test is needed, we travel directly to the patient in Winston-Salem to perform the test.
Many people who struggle with the swallowing process must complete a modified barium swallow test to diagnose their condition and move forward with treatment. Here at TwinCity Medical Mobile, we perform modified barium swallow tests aboard our travelling medical mobile van, and our approach to the testing process is convenient and comfortable for patients in nursing homes, extended care facilities, and other locations throughout Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
A modified barium swallow test is mainly used to determine the cause of difficulty swallowing, painful swallowing, abdominal pain, or unexplained weight loss. During the testing process, the patient ingests a solution containing barium sulfate, which is a metallic compound that shows up on x-rays. By tracking the path of the barium sulfate, we are able to document abnormalities within the stomach and esophagus as the solution travels through the digestive system.
We are committed to making the modified barium swallow testing process as convenient and hassle-free as possible. After we receive a contract from a speech therapist indicating that a modified barium swallow test is needed, we travel directly to the patient to perform the test. This eliminates the need to spend hours in an outpatient facility or hospital waiting for the testing process to be conducted.
