    LAB DESCRIPTION:
    Since 1977 we have been studying swallowing,
    speech, and voice physiology in healthy individuals
    as well as patients of diverse medical backgrounds,
    using imaging techniques such as ultrasonography,
    videofluorography, and MRI. At present, we are
    conducting pioneering research on various new
    applications of ultrasound and MR imaging (e.g.,
    3D reconstruction of tongue, oropharyngeal
    kinematics, 3D imaging of lingual and neck tumors,
    abnormal muscles of oropharynx and extremities).
    In addition, we are studying motor control and
    strategies for sequential versus discrete swallowing
    behaviors via videofluorography in normal and
    disordered populations, as a part of a long-term
    plan to establish norms for clinical management
    of patients with dysphagia.

    To provide programming expertise, design/modify
    research instruments, operate instruments and
    participate in clinical & research procedures,
    conduct image processing/analysis, maintain
    research database, perform equipment
    calibrations/testing/repair/maintenance, etc.
