Video Stroboscopy

A video stroboscopy study evaluates the motion of your child’s vocal cords when there are concerns regarding the strength, pitch and quality of his voice. A small, thin, flexible endoscope with a camera is gently inserted through the nose to the area in the back of the throat above the vocal cords.

Your child will be directed to say or speak certain sounds or words, which should make the vocal cords perform specific movements. This procedure takes only a few minutes, is painless and does not require sedation. Family members can also see the exam on a video monitor while it is being recorded.
