WHAT IS A VIDEOSTROBOSCOPY?
A videostroboscopy is a medical test that is completed to look at the structure and movement of the vocal cords and to examine the muscles and the tissues in the larynx. A scope that is attached to a camera is inserted through the mouth or nose. Pictures are taken and then analyzed to assess the vocal cords. This is a non painful procedure that typically takes around 20-45 minutes to complete. A videostroboscopy can identify vocal polyps, vocal nodules, or abnormalities with the vocal cords. It can also be helpful to evaluate swallowing problems.
OUR APPROACH AT KEY THERAPIES:
Recommendations will be based off of findings from the videostroboscopy. Exercises may be recommended to help address the problem. Occasionally a speech-language pathologist and a physician will work together.
