Our aim in this study was to evaluate hyoid bone movement trajectories and the age-related changes during swallowing in healthy subjects by ultrasonography. Data were obtained from 30 healthy volunteers (15 men, 15 women) in three age groups (20-39, 40-59, 60-79 years). The subjects were examined while sitting in an upright position, with the back against a wall to control movement. The transducer was placed in a longitudinal scan above the larynx. The subjects were then given 5 mL of mineral… CONTINUE READING
