We use single point imaging with rapid encoding (SPIRE) to image the vocal fold oscillations in the coronal plane. SPIRE is able to image fast, repetitive and two-dimensional motion, because the temporal resolution does not depend on TR but on the duration of the fast-switching phase encoding gradients, which is below one millisecond in this work. Data are gated using electroglottography and projection navigators are acquired during the sequence to detect shifts in larynx position which is corrected during reconstruction.
