Diagnosing Voice Problems
To determine the cause of voice problems, our fellowship-trained laryngologists and speech pathologists will use fiber-optic technology and a stroboscope to visualize the larynx and vocal cords.
Videostroboscopy provides a magnified, slow-motion view of your vocal cords, which allows laryngologists to better diagnose voice problems over traditional endoscopic methods.
The procedure involves placing a telescope-like device on the tongue or passing a flexible version through the nose. The scope shines a strobe light on the vocal cords while the you make sounds. The recorded exam, which is reviewed with you, offers specific details regarding the vocal cord vibratory pattern, and allows the laryngologist or speech pathologist to observe specific abnormalities of the vocal cords.
Laryngologists consider stroboscopy to be essential for state-of-the-art management of voice disorders.
