Modified Barium Swallow Procedure

The Modified Barium Swallow Procedure as developed by Teleradiology Specialists. This video describes the process and how to perform the procedure using the UC-5000.

Turn your radiology room into a profit center with the New UC-5000.

What do we mean by that? Well, the UC-5000 is so flexible, powerful and compact that it doesn’t even need a dedicated exam room to operate. Minimal lead lining of the room required and a standard 115v outlet gets you powered up.

Imagine what an extra exam room will mean for your practice:

Decreased patient wait times

The flexibility of “no dedicated X-ray room” means more available exam rooms. You’ll be able to accommodate the after-school or late day rush with no problem.

Flexible patient flow

The UC-5000 lets you turn any exam room into an X-ray room so moving patients where you need them is just easier.

Increased patient satisfaction

Less wait times, less moving from room to room means, well, happier patients. They receive the care they need, you keep your practice moving and profitable.

At Teleradiology Specialists, we have extensive experience in interpreting X-Rays from Urgent Care centers. In fact, we read X-Ray images for over 1,000 Urgent Care facilities nationwide.

I recently reviewed a series of radiographic images taken on Urgent Care patients utilizing the UC-5000, a new low-power, high-frequency mobile X-Ray system specifically designed for the Urgent Care arena and manufactured by Source-Ray Inc. These patient images included the majority of X-Ray exams that are most common to Urgent Care: chest (PA/Lateral), lumbar spine (PA/Lateral), shoulder, and extremities (arm, hand, ankle and foot). All were direct digital images. The images were of the highest diagnostic quality. Even the chest and lumbar spine X-Ray images, which were taken on patients weighing more than 270 lbs., displayed consistent resolution. I find the quality remarkable considering the images were produced by a lower power unit.

This unit requires only minimal lead shielding and therefore can be utilized in the existing patient exam rooms, making it easier to add X-Ray equipment to existing offices. This flexibility, coupled with excellent quality, makes the Source-Ray UC-5000 an excellent match for the needs of the Urgent Care market.
