The evidence for the physiologic foundation and interpretation of the videofluorographic swallowing study (VFSS) is described. The purpose and clinical utility of VFSS are explained. Standardization of the VFSS procedure, protocol, interpretation and reporting are highlighted as a critical step in future clinical practice and in clinical research. Individualized, evidenced-based rehabilitation strategies are presented as key components that are systematically applied during the VFSS procedure and integrated into the swallowing management plan. A new tool that has been developed and tested for the quantification of swallowing impairment is introduced.Copyright:
