In , Kay Elemetrics (now KayPENTAX) introduced laryngeal stroboscopy systems that precisely controlled the triggering of light sources so that only one. Laryngeal stroboscopy: This examination is a specialized viewing of vocal fold vibration. Laryngeal stroboscopy involves controlled high-speed flashes of light. Video laryngeal stroboscopy (VLS) is a procedure done to evaluate the motion of the vocal cords. It allows the physician to tell the difference between different.

In some cases, additional procedures, such as vocal fold injections or endoscopic excision of nodules, may be performed at the same time as stroboscopy. Once the vocal folds are clearly visualised, the patient will be asked to make certain sounds, usually pronouncing a vowel, at various pitches low frequency, high frequency, and mid-range and volumes.

Our goal is to give you access to powerful and credible information that is not available anywhere else.

Laryngeal videostroboscopy continues to be the imaging modality of choice by voice clinicians due to its historical use and xtroboscopy to efficiently capture many salient vocal fold vibratory characteristics. Research and clinical implications. Figure 2 displays one such rating system, the Stroboscopy Evaluation Rating Form, which assesses the following laryngeal properties during phonation: Abstract Purpose of review This paper summarizes recent technological advancements and laryngexl into the role of stroboscopy in laryngeal imaging.


The LxStrobe system used in our work uses the Laryngograph signal to trigger the stroboscope and also provides information about the change in vocal fold contact during each cycle see Laryngograph section. This examination provides the clearest magnified view of the voice box. Looking for a doctor? Laryngeal videostroboscopy continues to be the modality of choice for strobosdopy vocal fold vibration, but technological advancements and HSV research findings are driving increased interest stroboscppy the clinical adoption of HSV to complement videostroboscopic assessment.


Arch Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg. Symposium Program Programs and Abstracts. There is typically no pain in the nose after the scope is removed. This book chapter details the principles behind stroboscopic imaging and its application to laryngel laryngeal imaging. Recent advances in coupling stroboscopic systems with high-definition HD video camera sensors provide unprecedented spatial resolution of the vocal fold structures involved in phonatory vibration e. Vocal fold phase asymmetries in patients with voice disorders: Stroboscopy is a procedure performed to evaluate the vibration of the vocal cords.

This paper reports on one of the few studies directly relating vocal fold vibratory measures derived from high-speed videoendoscopy to acoustic perturbation measures.

High-definition systems provide added spatial resolution as compared to standard-definition systems, which exhibit pixelation at high levels of magnification. More of these types of side-by-side comparisons are necessary to understand the possible inclusion of new laryngea, modalities into the voice clinic. The vertical red lines indicate the actual vibratory cycle and phase when each stroboscopic snapshot was taken.


Ear Nose Throat J. Videostroboscopic technologies typically strobocsopy two views of periodic vocal fold vibration. However, rigid laryngoscopy is generally less comfortable for the patient, requiring a higher tolerance for gagging and more cooperation. Oertel published the earliest application of stroboscopic principles to observe vocal fold vibrations using a revolving disk with equally spaced holes to mechanically shutter a light source [ 2 — 4 ]. The procedure can be done with either a rigid or flexible scope.

Strbooscopy HSV may provide more detailed information about phonatory function, its eventual clinical adoption depends on how remaining practical, technical, and methodological challenges will be met. With rigid laryngoscopy, the tongue of the patient is retracted anteriorly to allow stroobscopy insertion of the scope in the mouth.


Visual stroboscopic assessment Studies indicate that interrater reliability of visual stroboscopic assessment varies depending on the laryngeal feature being rated and that only a subset of features may be needed to represent an entire assessment. Stroboscopy systems and components. The two categorically scaled parameters of vertical level and glottal closure were judged so unreliably that it was suggested that their assessment might hold little information [ 15 ].

Rigid Laryngoscopy An examination of the voice box in which a rigid telescope is used; this examination provides the clearest magnified detail of the voice box, but the patient is unable to speak or sing during the exam.

In recent years, technology has greatly improved, allowing improved image quality and resolution. In a group of healthy speakers, it was found that the reliability of stroboscopic ratings were comparable with similar ratings made on HSV recordings, except for visual judgments of symmetry [ 19 ].

The evolution of phonomicrosurgical management.

Validation of a pediatric vocal fold nodule rating scale based on digital video images. High-definition videostroboscopy Recent advances in coupling stroboscopic systems with high-definition HD video camera sensors provide unprecedented spatial resolution of the vocal fold structures involved in phonatory vibration e.

Current role of stroboscopy in laryngeal imaging

This is the complex vibratory or oscillatory movement of the mucosa of the vocal fold that takes place in order to produce voice. High-speed laryngeal imaging compared with videostroboscopy in layngeal subjects. Technological advancements Imaging of rapid vocal fold motion has a long and storied history.

Comparison of high-speed digital imaging with stroboscopy for laryngeal imaging of glottal disorders.
