The program included sessions on Scientific and Clinical Applications, Current and Emerging Technology as well as Proffered Abstracts. Guest speakers at the Summit hailed from all across the United States and even Australia.

Real-time MRI is being increasingly used for studies of speech and vocal production. This application has seen major growth in the past five years. USC has and continues to be one of the 3 or 4 leading institutions worldwide in this area, in terms of technology development, translation, publications, and grant funding.

The aim of the USC Speech MRI Summit was to:
1. Bring together the leading groups worldwide
2. Review the enabling technology, basic science applications, and clinical applications
3. Share best practices
4. Produce 1-2 position papers in major journals
