DtH 16: 50 Shades of Gray – Addressing the SLP Relationship with Radiology
Do you feel that SLPs are at the mercy of Radiology? Is there any chance that SLPs could run videofluoroscopy studies by themselves? In this installment of Down the Hatch (The Swallowing Podcast) our special guest is Jen Sirera R.T. (R), BHSc, CIIP, the Technical Director (and former Radiology Technologist) of Radiology at Shands Hospital at the University of Florida. We discuss access to fluoroscopy, increasing to 30 pulses per second, and recording MBS studies. Bottom line: SLPs should build a relationship with their Department of Radiology AND consider reaching out to mobile MBS and FEES companies to fulfill their patients’ needs!
