Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Effortful Swallow

Although the physiologic effects of the effortful swallow technique have been studied using videofluoroscopy and manometry, the physiology of the effortful swallow has not been studied using dMRI imaging, which offers the benefit of examining the swallow mechanism temporally with no exposure to ionizing radiation.  THANC is the first to evaluate the effects of this maneuver via dynamic magnetic resonance imaging (dMRI) in healthy patients.
