Morphologic and kinematic analysis of swallowing using multislice CT

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Dynamic swallowing computed tomography (CT) is a novel technology with superior spatial (0.5 mm voxel) and sufficient temporal resolution (10 frames/s) that produces the dynamic three-dimensional images and quantitative kinematic analysis of swallowing. This technique has provided new insights into swallowing morphology and kinematics in two primary ways: precise 3D dynamic imaging and quantitative measures. This has in turn promoted the treatment-oriented evaluation in dysphagia rehabilitation.
