Abstract

This payer presents a system for the automated tracking of non-rigid anatomic structures in two-dimensional image sequences. It is applied to X-ray image sequences of the vocal tract. In this application articulatory organs have to be measured to investigate the complex dynamic characteristics of human speech production, with particular interest in the robust boundary detection of non-rigid organs such as the tongue.
