Reading and Interpreting Videofluoroscopic Studies: A Tutorial
Total Run Time: 3 hours, 15 minutes
An information-rich videofluoroscopic assessment can help
clinicians determine which components of the complex oropharyngeal swallow need
to be targeted for intervention. Visualizing all of the elements that
contribute to a well-integrated or disordered swallow mechanism requires an
ordered and disciplined review. This video course will demonstrate methods to
enhance clinicians' ability to perform a videofluoroscopic assessment and
discern the discrete elements of the oropharyngeal swallow. Participants will
then practice determining the integrity or disorder of the swallow mechanism by
viewing and interpreting case study video.
You will be able to:
- perform a videofluoroscopic
swallow assessment in a way that will yield the greatest amount of visual
information to reveal integrity or disorder of the swallow mechanism
- prepare for an ordered review
of the recorded images from the imaging study
- visually isolate the
simultaneous movements and events into discrete elements that contribute to the
integrity or disorder of the swallowing mechanism
