Voice, Swallowing & Throat Disorders
For a detailed assessment of your voice and vocal cord function, your doctor may perform laryngeal videostroboscopy. In addition to the procedure for nasolaryngoscopy, a slow motion view of your voice box is produced as you are asked to make various vocal sounds. Your voice is recorded by a small microphone positioned close to your neck and is analysed to optimise the slow motion video of your voice box.
When symptoms might indicate the need for laryngeal videostroboscopy?
- Weak or asthenic voice
- Hoarseness or roughness of voice
- Breathy or airy voice
- Voice that is tight or strained
Each of our private examination rooms features a monitor that allows you to see, in real-time, the same images that we see. This allows us to better explain your condition as we view the images together. In some instances, we may also capture images and photographs from the procedure for further review. This allows us to provide you with periodic and optimal follow-up care.
