OBJECTIVE 22q11.2 deletion syndrome is the most common genetic cause of velopharyngeal dysfunction (VPD). Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a promising method for noninvasive, three-dimensional (3D) assessment of velopharyngeal (VP) anatomy. The purpose of this study was to assess VP structure in patients with 22q11.2 deletion syndrome by using 3D MRI analysis. DESIGN This was a retrospective analysis of magnetic resonance images obtained in patients with VPD associated with a 22q11.2… CONTINUE READING
