MRI techniques have been used to obtain mid-sagittal cuts of vowels uttered by several French speakers. These data have been compared with data coming from X-ray studies made by Bothorel et al. [7]. Area functions and derived formants have been evaluated by a comparison with formant frequencies extracted from vowels in a session different from the MRI recording sessions.
