Thanks to our approach, patients do not have to spend hours waiting at a hospital or outpatient facility in Winston-Salem to have a swallow study performed.
Difficulties eating, drinking, and swallowing can be debilitating and harm your quality of life. If your doctor or speech-language therapist has ordered a swallow study, here is what you can expect from the test when our team here at TwinCity Medical Mobile handles the process:
- We will show up at your residence in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and you will come aboard our state-of-the-art traveling medical van.
- You will drink a solution containing barium, which is used because it shows up on x-rays.
- We will use x-rays to track the path of the barium solution and determine were swallowing difficulties occur.
- Your test will be recorded via DVR and copies of it will be given to you, your doctor, your speech-language therapist, and any other applicable parties.
A swallow study can track a wide variety of issues with swallowing, including narrowing or irritation of the esophagus, dysphagia, abnormally enlarged veins in the esophagus, ulcers, tumors, and more. Although we do not interpret the results of swallow studies, we do ensure the testing process is comfortable and efficient. Thanks to our approach, patients do not have to spend hours waiting at a hospital or outpatient facility to have a swallow study performed.
