Dysphagia Consultation at the Comfort of Your Home

With the help of Diamond Diagnostics in Gilbert, AZ, you don’t need to go to the hospital to consult for dysphagia or swallowing issues. We are a mobile outpatient treatment center specializing in swallow barium test. Just send us your doctor's order, and we will come to you to administer the exam you need.

A video fluoroscopic swallowing exam (VFSE), also sometimes called a modified barium swallow (MBS), or swallow study, is a radiologic examination of swallowing function that uses a special movie-type x-ray called fluoroscopy. The patient is observed swallowing various types of substances mixed with barium that can be seen by fluoroscopy in order to evaluate his or her ability to swallow safely and effectively. Patients are observed swallowing various consistencies and textures, ranging from thin barium to tablets. The exam is performed with a speech-language pathologist and supervised by a physician.

Diamond Diagnostics Mobile MBS is a noninvasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat dysphagia (difficulty swallowing). A MBS may be performed as an independent test to look at the motion of the mouth and pharangeal (throat) during swallowing, or together with an esophagram, also called a barium swallow exam, which evaluates the structure and function of the esophagus to the level of the stomach.
