Modified Barium Swallow
This two-page handout helps people prepare for a modified barium swallow, which is a motion picture x-ray examination of the mouth and throat that checks what types of foods and liquids are safe for the patient to swallow. The document explains what will happen during the test, and discusses working with a speech therapist after the test. It clarifies that women who are breastfeeding, pregnant, or might be pregnant should tell the staff before the test.
