What’s New at St. Mary’s

Thanks to a generous grant from the New York City Council, we are pleased to announce the addition of a C-Arm, a piece of medical equipment that is used to complete modified barium swallow (MBS) studies. A MBS is an X-ray video that shows how a child swallows various foods and liquids. The study provides detailed information on how safely a child can eat and drink. If your child’s medical team or speech language pathologist wants a better understanding of how your child swallows foods and liquids they may recommend this test. St. Mary’s is thrilled to be able to add this service to the comprehensive feeding and swallowing program so we can continue to help your child reach their feeding goals. For more information please contact Jessica Shaw, Assistant Director of Rehab, at (718)281-8738.
