Reading and Interpreting Videofluoroscopic Studies: A Tutorial (WEB16307)

Presenter(s): Joseph Murray, PhD, CCC-SLP
Course Description


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. In this video course, Joseph Murray demonstrates methods to enhance clinicians' ability to perform a videofluoroscopic assessment and discern the discrete elements of the oropharyngeal swallow. Participants can practice determining the integrity or disorder of the swallow mechanism by viewing and interpreting case study video.

Learning Outcomes
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

What is Included?

You'll get online access to all the course content, including the full video, handouts, and references so you can access it from anywhere!

Here's what your colleagues have to say:
"The video image of simultaneous MBS and fees was extremely helpful. I've been doing laryngeal exams for years, and this really helped me put the fluoroscopic information in anatomical context that I am used to.”- Kari Urberg Carlson, PhD, CCC-SLP

Assessment Type

Self-assessment—Think about what you learned and report on the Completion Form how you will use your new knowledge.
