TJRH now offering Modified Barium Swallow studies

By Stacey Biggs

T.J. Regional Health now offers Modified Barium Swallow (MBS) studies for infants and children. This swallow test uses a special type of moving x-ray technology called fluoroscopy to see inside of the mouth and neck while the child swallows.

There are several reasons that a person may need a MBS, which may include coughing and/or choking when eating or drinking, wet sounding voice when eating or drinking, or frequent respiratory infections. Once the causes of the swallowing difficulty are identified, the most appropriate treatment or management techniques for the swallowing problems can be determined.

For more information about Modified Barium Swallow, please contact T.J. Regional Health's Rehabilitation Department at 270.659.5660.
