The present study demonstrates the possibility to reconstruct complete midsagittal tongue shapes from the coordinates of three fleshpoints on the tongue and from the position of the jaw. The method is based on the inversion of an articulatory model made on the subject from cineradiographic images, and lead to an average reconstruction error of 1.26mm.
