"Solid Modeling of Human Vocal Tract Using Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Acoustic Pharyngometer"
by H.Z Tameem, B.V Mehta,
in the 26th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 2004. IEMBS '04. Volume 2, September 2004

After careful and considered review of the content and authorship of this paper by a duly constituted expert committee, this paper has been found to be in violation of IEEE's Publication Principles.

"Morphology and Development of the Human Vocal Tract: A Study Using Magnetic Resonance Imaging"
by W. Tecumseh Fitch and Jay Giedd,
Acoustical Society of America, 106 (3 Pt 1): September 1999, pp. 1511-1522

This investigation uses a multi disciplinary approach to standardize a non-invasive method for measuring human vocal tract morphology. A series of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans are performed on the subject's vocal tract and a detailed three-dimensional model is created through image processing and computer modeling. The area and volume obtained from the solid model is compared with that obtained from the Eccovision acoustic pharyngometer. This establishes the accuracy of the solid model. The model is then used to develop other specific models through parametric modeling. This method is useful in creating solid models with limited geometrical information and helps researchers study the human vocal tract changes due to aging and degenerative diseases.
