Reviews

“This comprehensive resource on swallowing fluoroscopy includes high quality color and black-and-white images of both normal findings and pathology. … It is written for speech-language pathologists, otolaryngologists, radiologists, gastroenterologists, and physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians. Given the level of detail, it is most appropriate for those who actively participate in or regularly order such testing for their patients.” (Elisabeth Ference, Doody's Book Reviews, July, 2015)

About the authors

Dr. Peter Belafsky's primary clinical interests are the comprehensive diagnosis and management of voice, swallowing and airway disorders. As Medical Director of the Voice and Swallowing Center at UC Davis, Dr. Belafsky treats a wide array of laryngeal and esophageal disorders. These disorders include but are not limited to vocal fold paralysis and paresis, vocal fold dysfunction (VCD), laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR), chronic cough and dysphagia caused by stroke, ALS, Zenker's diverticulum, esophageal motility disorders, Parkinson's disease and swallowing problems suffered as a consequence of the treatment of head and neck cancer. Dr. Belafsky has pioneered minimally invasive treatments of voice and swallowing disorders and his primary research focus is the development of an artificial swallowing mechanism. He has created a medical device that can manually control the upper esophageal sphincter and is working on a comprehensive swallow propulsion system.
