Laryngology 101: Laryngoscopy the art of seeing the voice (vocal cords)

by James Thomas

Laryngoscopy is the art of placing a camera in the throat to view the vocal cords. Important aspects of how to perform the examination, what structures can be seen and how do different areas function are described. A laryngoscopy is the foundation for diagnosing hoarseness or voice problems.

    Editor's Review
    This is a very good tutorial on what is seen during a laryngeal exam, and what the ENT physician is looking for during a basic examination. The stroboscopic portion is not stellar. Minor complaints: we wish he would use the term "vocal folds" instead of "vocal cords." Also, be aware that many ENTs still use an endoscope in which the camera is attached to the end of the endoscope, and only the lens is actually inserted. The newer "Chip in the Tip" or "Distal Chip" endoscopes do have a tiny camera at the end of the endoscope, that is actually inserted into the nose.
