For the speech ability assessment of glossectomee patients, dynamic MRT was used in order to obtain real time imaging of articulatory movements. At the present state, the method is best suited for continuous consonants, but it can be used for the evaluation of any speech sound. In this study, preand postoperative consonant articulation of eight patients with cancer of the oral cavity is compered by means of acoustic analysis and real-time MRI.
