Summary

Twenty-seven patients with different swallowing disorders were studied by employing Digital Cine-Radiography (DCR) for rapid imaging of the pharynx with a temporal resolution of up to 50 frames per second and a maximum spatial resolution of.8 per/mm. To facilitate therapy planning, the DCR study can be transferred to the oto-rhino-laryngologist via video-tape. DCR is capable to substitute analog cine or videotechniques in the pre- and postoperative examination of patients with swallowing disorders with at least identical image quality, the advantage of higher flexibility and the potential of a reduced radiation exposure.
