Illustration of a videofluoroscopic swallowing study - VFSS

Illustration of the examination situation during a videofluoroscopic examination of the swallowing. In this examination, the patient’s swallowing process is recorded with 25-30 images per second using X-rays. Contrast agents are added to the swallow samples to make them visible in the X-ray image.
