Ultrasound imaging is a diagnostic technique that is part of the armamentarium of procedures that can be used to assess the oropharyngeal swallow. Although it is not as widely used as some of the other procedures, ultrasound has many advantages for those of us concerned with reducing the cost of our diagnostic services. Ultrasound images can be used to track progress in treatment and is an excellent biofeedback system for both swallowing and speech articulation. I believe that ultrasound has multiple applications for use with the emerging telemedicine era of the twenty first century and I hope that our field will be ready to take advantage of this opportunity.
