InnovaDx (a division of Innovative Rehabilitation, LLC) delivers the two instrumental, Imaging Swallow Studies available (FEES, and MBSS) to the patient's residence.
MBS: Modified Barium Swallow Studies
FEES: Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallow
– Either study will determine if food and/or liquid is going into the lungs, called aspiration
– Exams are performed by highly skilled, Accredited and Credentialed Speech Language Pathologists (SLPs) specializing in dysphagia (difficulty swallowing).
Modified Barium Swallow Studies are conducted on our state of the art unit by one of our SLP dysphagia experts, physician, and technician.
Patients simply need to be seated in a wheelchair and brought aboard the van. An MBS involves studying a patient consuming food and liquid
coated in barium under video fluoroscopy or real time x-ray. Aspiration and abnormalities are 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 endoscope 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.
Mobile-based Modified Barium Swallow Study as well as Fiber optic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing, or FEES Study, a new way. The best way. With results delivered immediately.
InnovaDx provides fully mobile self-contained, Physician, Technician, and Speech Language Therapist staffed MBS testing for patients in need.
