This paper presents a comparative study of transformations used to compute the area of a cross sections of the vocal tract from the midsagittal diameter of the vocal tract. MRI techniques have been used to obtain cross sections of the vocal tract in a study of French oral vowels uttered by two subjects. The measured cross sectional areas are compared to the cross sectional areas computed by the different transformations.
