Clinical Utility of Barium Sulfate Products: Formulation Determines Appropriate Use
Released: September 23, 2021 Expires: September 23, 2022 CE credits: 0.10 Cost: $0.00
Faculty: Steven Sireci, MD
19822

Depending on its intended application in Fluoroscopy or CT, Barium Sulfate (BaSO4) contains specific combinations of additional ingredients that support the diagnosis of disease, define treatment options, and improve patient outcomes. When used for the anatomical evaluation of the GI tract or the physiology of swallowing, a comprehensive understanding of the clinical utility of Barium products and their additives, is needed. This accredited program explains the differences and the benefits of each additive and is designed to increase knowledge about the clinical applications of Barium.

Dr. Sireci will provide a comprehensive overview of each Barium product, its indication and intended use. Following the presentation, the audience is invited to join Dr. Sireci for lively Q & A session.

Educational Objectives:
At the completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Explain the role that BaSO4 plays in barium-containing contrast media.
  • Review the purpose of each ingredient/additive found in BaSO4 contrast media products currently available for fluoroscopic and radiographic examinations.
  • Describe the formulation of barium products that are appropriate for single and double contrast anatomic radiographic evaluation of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract.
  • Summarize qualities of the barium-containing contrast media used in evaluation of swallowing that make them most appropriate for that application.
  • State the properties of barium-containing contrast media used in computed tomography (CT) applications

Diagnosis and Management of Swallowing Physiology: Standardized Contrast, the MBSImP™, & the IDDSI Framework
Released: May 01, 2021 Expires: April 30, 2023 CE credits: 0.10 Cost: $0.00
Faculty: Applied Radiology

Catriona M. Steele, PhD, Bonnie Martin-Harris, PhD, Memorie Gosa, PhD, Stephanie Edwards Allen, BSRT, MBA

The MBSS, also known as a video fluoroscopic swallow study (VFSS), is a barium-sulfate–enhanced fluoroscopic motion study used to evaluate anatomy and swallowing physiology si­multaneously in real time. Varibar, an FDA-approved barium sulfate product for evaluation of dysphagia, together with The Modified Barium Swallow Impairment Profile (MBSImP), are used to ensure standardization and reproducibility in the MBSS. This monograph explains the relationship between Varibar, the MBSImP, and the International Dysphagia Diet Standardisation (IDDSI) framework in evaluation of swallowing in clinical practice.

At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Explain how the modified barium swallow study (MBSS), The Modified Barium Swallow Impairment Profile (MBSImP), and barium sulfate products are used to evaluate dysphagia
  • Describe the development of FDA-approved barium sulfate products used to assess dysphagia
  • Review the International Dysphagia Diet Standardisation (IDDSI) framework: what it is and how it was developed
  • Define the relationship between the MBSS, the MBSImP, barium sulfate, and IDDSI, and how they are used in clinical practice
  • Summarize pediatric and clinical-practice considerations in performing the MBSS
