Modified Barium Swallow Test
A Modified Barium Swallow Study (MBSS) is a test that uses an x-ray to assess your swallowing. It is completed with a Speech-Language Pathologist (swallowing and communication specialist) and radiologist. This procedure is designed to assess how you swallow, how the muscles are working, and if you are aspirating any solids or liquids. This helps determine
if any strategies or exercises help improve your swallow or if diet changes should occur.
