In assessing lateral pharyngeal wall movement during routine cinefluorographic examination for velopharyngeal adequacy, the inclusion of submentovertical projection is important to the lateral projection of the velum. The main structures of the nasopharynx and surrounding areas are defined, and a method to obtain visualization of this area in normal subjects is described. The degree of lateral pharyngeal wall movement varies among normal individuals and may affect the success of pharyngeal flap operations in patients with velopharyngeal inadequacy.
