Laryngeal videostroboscopy

A technique of examining the larynx that includes special [intlink id=”163″ type=”post”]endoscopes[/intlink] coupled to both continuous and strobe light, a video system, a TV monitor, and a computer. This technique produces highly magnified views of the larynx that are video documented for later study/review with patient, speech pathologist, family, and so forth. In normal light the vibration of the folds would appear as a blur; the strobe light allows assessment of apparent individual cycles of vibration.
