Ultrasound Analysis of Sucking: Tongue-Tie and Confounders

by Catherine Watson Genna, BS, IBCLC
  • Duration: 60 Mins
  • Credits: 1 CERP, 1 L-CERP, 1 Dietetic CEU
  • Learning Format: Webinar
  • Handout: Yes

Ultrasound is a useful tool in our quest to understand both normal sucking and breastfeeding impairments. Research depends on both accurate classification of subjects and breastfeeding best practices. This webinar presents findings from our studies of the organization of tongue movements in space and time during breastfeeding using an objective methodology, highlighting some important considerations when conducting or assessing research.

Learning Objectives:

1. Discuss the importance of both a deep, stable latch and the infant’s own tongue mobility in normal sucking.

2. Describe how the anterior and mid-tongue move differently during normal breastfeeding.

3. List two differences between tongue movements in tongue tied infants before frenotomy and those of normal infants.

4. Discuss the differences in tongue movements in tongue-tied infants versus those with congenital muscular torticollis.
