The vocal tract structures undergo drastic anatomic restructuring during the course of development from infancy to adulthood. This study demonstrates the feasibility of using MRI to examine the growth processes of the vocal tract. This method affords precise and detailed visualization of the soft tissues in the oro-pharyngeal region, while also providing images of related bony and cartilaginous structures. Information on anatomic restructuring contributes to the understanding of how speech… CONTINUE READING
