Swallow Studies (FEES)

Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES) uses an endoscope to assess a person's ability to swallow. The endoscope is guided through a patient's nasal passage into the throat so the pharynx and upper esophageal opening is viewed in real time while a patient is eating or drinking.

The test takes approximately 20 minutes and is administered where a person normally eats or at their bedside. Since the testing take place where the patient normally experiences swallowing problems the results are more accurate. The test is administered by a specialist and the results are immediate.


Faster diagnosis and faster more accurate treatment

FEES Breakdown:

  1. High definition images allow for more accurate results

  2. Therapist can examine before, during, and after swallowing 

  3. No radiation exposure allowing for longer and more accurate testing as needed

  4. Less transport improves patient safety

  5. Securely electronically stored for quick and easy access
