Robust tongue tracking in ultrasound images: a multi-hypothesis approach

Catherine Laporte, Lucie Ménard
2015 Interspeech 2015   unpublished
Ultrasound (US) imaging is an excellent means of observing tongue motion during speech.  ...  Tracking the tongue contour in US video is required for analysis of this motion, but most currently available techniques suffer from either a lack of temporal consistency or a lack of robustness to difficult  ...  A particle filtering approach [12] is proposed to track the tongue in US video sequences.  ...

Potential Role of MRI Imaging for Myofascial Pain: A Scoping Review for the Clinicians and Theoretical Considerations

Valerie Evans, Michael Behr, Anshika Gangwar, Michael D Noseworthy, Dinesh Kumbhare
2021 Journal of Pain Research  
Future research utilizing MRI techniques to image muscle are necessary to provide a more robust means of imaging skeletal muscle and the MTrP.  ...  The purpose of this review was to identify evidence in literature for the use of imaging in the role of classifying and explaining the physiology of MTrPs.  ...  More recently, a more robust and quantitative approach has been accepted in the clinic -that of parametric T2 mapping.  ...

Subject-specific biomechanical modelling of the oropharynx: towards speech production

Negar Mohaghegh Harandi, Ian Stavness, Jonghye Woo, Maureen Stone, Rafeef Abugharbieh, Sidney Fels
2015 Computer Methods in Biomechanics and Biomedical Engineering Imaging & Visualization  
Our approach adapts a generic tongue-jaw -hyoid model [Stavness I, Lloyd JE, Payan Y, Fels S. 2011.  ...  In this paper, we develop a subject-specific model of the oropharynx and investigate its utility in speech production.  ...  For example, ultrasound imaging can provide a real-time representation of the tongue surface (Wrench and Scobbie 2011) ; magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can capture soft-tissue articulators (tongue,  ...
