Our FULLY EQUIPPED, MEDICALLY-STAFFED van
brings modified barium swallow testing to your doorstep!

Now Bringing the two instrumental, imaging swallow studies* to your doorstep

MBS– Modified Barium Swallow Studies and FEES– Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallow
– BOTH studies are used determine if food and/or liquid is going into the lungs, called aspiration
– Exams are performed by highly skilled speech pathologists specializing in dysphagia (difficulty swallowing)

Modified Barium Swallow Studies are conducted on our state of the art van by one of our dysphagia experts, physician, and technician. Patients simply need to be seated in a wheelchair and brought aboard the van. An MBS involves watching a patient consume food and liquid coated in barium under video fluoroscopy or real time x-ray. Aspiration can be identified by the SLP.

Our FEES equipment is so portable, the exam can be conducted anywhere, at the patient's bedside or at their kitchen table. This exam involves passing a small scope through the nose into the throat. The scope's camera is placed just above the airway.  As the patient eats and drinks, the SLP can see aspiration occur.

Can we not call FEES a 'new way'? It's just not very accurate. FEES has been used since the 80's, around same amount of time as MBS. It's not as widely used because it involves more training and specific equipment… Hospitals are already equipped with video fluoroscopy, which makes MBS a more commonly used exam

*INSTRUMENTAL, IMAGING SWALLOW STUDIES is the most appropriate and technical way to refer to these exams.

A Proud Member Of The

Is it…

  • Take the traditional course at a hospital or outpatient center, and
  • The patient makes unnecessary round-trip visits and is forced to expend at least half a day or more, from start to finish…
  • Exhaust your resident in the process…
  • Wait… and wait… often with minimal or perhaps no post-study consultation…

Or can it be…

  • Engage with InnovaDx and
  • We deliver testing to the patient at their residence,
    and complete the study within an hour…
  • The patient needs not even leave their residence's property…
  • Test results and a DVD copy for the patient
    are provided immediately upon completion
    of their study…
