Single point imaging with rapid encoding (SPIRE) can dynamically image the oscillations of the vocal folds in the coronal plane with sub-milisecond temporal resolution. To add spatial encoding in the third dimension, a slower frequency encoding gradient was applied in slice direction, where motion is minimal. Electroglottography and projection navigators are used to detect shifts in the larynx position, which are corrected during reconstruction. The velocity of the mucosal wave is estimated from the images.
