OBJECTIVE Direct visualization of the velopharynx and, in particular, the levator muscle is particularly important in the assessment of velopharyngeal function and normal speech production. The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the development of a static and dynamic magnetic resonance imaging protocol for evaluation of velopharyngeal structures and function. METHODS A high-resolution, T2-weighted turbo-spin-echo three-dimensional anatomical scan (sampling perfection with application… CONTINUE READING
