Ultrasonographic evaluation of geniohyoid muscle movement during swallowing: a study on healthy adults of various ages.

Abstract

Our purpose in this study was to investigate the application of B+M-mode ultrasound (B/M-mode) imaging as a new approach to quantifying activity patterns of the geniohyoid muscles during swallowing and to assess how these patterns differ according to age and gender. Sixty healthy volunteers (30 men, 30 women) were divided into three age groups (20-39, 40-59… (More)
