Communication and Swallowing: Diagnostic Accuracy

Standardizing Laryngeal Endoscopy
Learn MoreSponsor: South Carolina Clinical & Translational Research Institute  |  PI: Heather Bonilha
The goal of this project is to acquire skills and preliminary data to address the poor reliability and lack of standardization in laryngeal endoscopy interpretation and reporting.

A. Subproject: Rater Reliability from Laryngeal Endoscopy
B. Subproject: Vocal Fold Vibratory Features as Seen From High-Speed Videoendoscopy and Stroboscopy

Impact of Acute Brain Lesion and Swallowing Impairment on Short-term Swallowing Outcomes.
Sponsor: South Carolina Clinical & Translational Research Institute  |  PI: Heather Bonilha
The goal of this project is to acquire preliminary data and a proof-of-concept for the methodology of using MRI and Modified Barium Swallow Studies to explain how stroke impacts swallowing and how swallowing function recovers post-stroke.

A. Subproject: MRI and MBSImP to Improve Diagnostic Accuracy and Recovery
B. Subproject: Prediction of Swallowing Impairment Post-Stroke

Throat Clearing, Coughing, and Alternative Behaviors
Sponsor: NIH/ National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders  |  PI: Heather Bonilha
The goal of this project is to evaluate the biomechanical characteristics of coughing, throat clearing, and clinically advocated alternatives via high-speed endoscopy recordings and to assess the efficiency to which these behaviors dispel both laryngeal mucus and the associated laryngeal sensation.

A. Subproject: Measurement Techniques for Laryngeal Sensation and Mucus Aggregation
