A videofluoroscopic swallowing assessment (VFS) is defined by the Royal Collese of Speech and Language Therapists (RCSLT) as a modification of the standard barium swallow examination used in the assessment and management of oropharynseal swallowing disorders*. Whilst other swallowing investigations are available, such as fibreoptic endoscopie evaluation of swallowing (FEES) and manometry, VFS is often described as the 'gold standard' for the assessment of dysphagia which is defined as a disorder of swallowing food from the mouth to the stomach.
