A modified barium swallow was performed and involved ingestion of small amounts of barium impregnated foodstuffs of four standardized consistencies (semi-solid, solid, thin liquid and thick liquid).
Following the initial clinical evaluation, if the SLP or physician feels that further assessment is necessary in determining the client's risk for dysphagia, instrumental procedures such as modified barium swallow (videofluoroscopic swallow study) should be performed (Chapey, 1994; Dikeman & Kazandjian, 1997; Logemann, 1998).
Video fluoroscopic swallow study, or modified barium swallow. A radiologist and a swallowing therapist, usually an SLR, perform this test.
Holas, DePippo, and Reding (1994) studied 114 stroke patients using the modified barium swallow examination.
In addition, the oral motor specialist may assist in determining the structure and function of the areas not visible from the outside, such as the pharynx and esophagus, through the use of x-rays--which could be known under a number of names depending on where the x-ray is taken: modified barium swallow, therapeutic swallow, rehab swallow.
In 1997, Aviv et al evaluated laryngopharyngeal sensitivity testing by using the modified barium swallow test as a predictor of aspiration pneumonia after stroke.
A properative modified barium swallow cofirmed aspiration with feeding consistencies.
A modified barium swallow study showed a slight delay of solid passage just below the cricopharyngeus muscle at the site of the cervical spine hardware, but no significant esophageal compression was noted.
Diagnostic tests: CT = computed tomography of the neck, MBS = modified barium swallow, EEG = electroencephalography, CNB = cervical nerve block, MRI = magnetic resonance imaging, TEE = transesophageal echocardiography, AG = arteriography.

A preoperative modified barium swallow examination and CT of the head and neck were scheduled, but the patient did not return for treatment for 1 year.
A video fluoroscopic swallow study (VFSS), also called a modified barium swallow, has been the traditional method of instrumental assessment, and until recently it was the gold standard for dysphagia evaluation.
