The complex anatomy of the larynx is a consequence of its various airway functions. The aim of the present study was to evaluate which anatomical structures of the larynx soft tissues could be defined using MRI, and to investigate the feasibility of using this technique to assess the dynamic functions of the larynx. MRI images of the larynx of six healthy volunteers during speech production were obtained in vivo. The volunteers were asked to breathe out long and deep in order to prolong in a… CONTINUE READING
