Abstract

Videofluoroscopy: a multidisciplinary team approach is a timely volume that helps to meet the growing need for multidisciplinary team knowledge of the videofluoroscopic swallowing study (VFSS). Clinicians increasingly rely on the objective examination of swallowing to create a baseline as part of the patient's diagnosis and treatment. Much of the current literature focuses on the speech and language therapist working alongside a radiologist. However, the radiologist is increasingly no longer involved in the investigation, highlighting the need to amplify the multidisciplinary team knowledge of the procedure.

Increasing demand for new and established diagnostic and interventional procedures has encouraged innovative models of service delivery, resulting in an extended range of health professionals crossing the traditional practice boundaries. In particular, the radiographers who complete the examination, along with the speech and language therapists, need to learn more about the swallowing function. Likewise, it is essential that speech and language therapists increase their knowledge base on the radiographic aspects of the examination.

Authored by numerous highly regarded scholars, Videofluoroscopy: a multidisciplinary team approach serves as a crucial resource to help all members of the videofluoroscopy service team acquire the knowledge and skills they require. The book is divided into two parts: Part One provides an overview of swallowing and an introduction to the VFSS. Part Two covers various clinical indications for VFSS, including stroke, neuromuscular conditions, pediatric disorders, learning disabilities, dementia, and head and neck cancers.
