In brief: Voice

There are multiple ways to evaluate the voice.
We can measure the essential frequency, measure vocal range, determine is cough/clearing is a problem, and do an endoscopy to look at the vocal cords. Talk to your doctor about going for an evaluation if there is a problem. An ENT or speech pathologist referral may be indicated.

In brief: Stroboscopy

Stroboscopy, a microphone, usually applied to the skin of the neck overlying the larynx, registers the frequency of voicing.
This is connected to a strobe light, which flashes just slightly out of synch with this frequency, offering a video image of the vibration of the covering of the vocal cord, known as the mucosal wave. Stroboscopy evaluates for polyps, nodule, cyst and scars.
