Dysphagia Studies

(FEES Study)

Mobile Images has partnered with the best provider of Dysphagia studies. These studies are performed bedside by clinically privileged Speech Language Pathologists (SLP). Having these studies performed bedside, keeps the resident at home and comfortable. The residents eat their normal diet so the exam is more accurate. An accurate diagnosis is essential for effective dysphagia management. Mobile Images’ partner’s state-of-the-art Dysphagia Systems Test (DST) is the only technique that evaluates all five bodily systems required for safe swallowing: Muscular, Neurological, Respiratory, Gastrointestinal and Cognitive. The function of each system is considered individually and the patient’s risk of complications from the dysphagia is established. Knowing what is causing the dysphagia helps to identify the most effective approach to treatment.
