Paper Abstract

In the past we have proposed a system that measures the deformations of the vocal folds from videostroboscopic images of the larynx, in that system: (1) we extract the boundaries of the vocal folds, (2) we register elastically the vocal fold boundaries in successive frames. This yields the displacement vector field (DVF) between adjacent frames, and (3) we fit using a least-squares approach an affine transformation model to succinctly describe the deformations between adjacent frames. In this paper, we present as an example of the capabilities of this system, an initial study of the deformation changes in rat vocal folds pre and post injection with Botulinum toxin. For this application the generated DVF was segmented into right DVF and left DVF and the deformation of each segment is studied separately.
