What is a videostroboscopy?

videostroboscopy. Videostroboscopy is a state-of-the-art technique that provides a magnified, slow motion view of the vocal cords in action. It allows a team approach in which the physician and the speech language pathologist can assess numerous vocal parameters as well as view abnormal motion and other disorders of the vocal folds.
Slow motion. Videostroboscopy is the use of a strobe light and video camera during endoscopy to "slow down" the motion of the vocal cords to get a very detailed look at their motion and anatomy. Most ents (otolaryngologists) perform this in the clinic.
