Common Diagnostic Tests & Evaluations

Video Laryngoscopy

A procedure that uses a flexible endoscope with a camera to visualize the vocal cords and surrounding structures during speech and swallowing. It provides detailed images of the larynx and helps identify abnormalities or vocal cord pathologies.

Flexible Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES)

This test involves inserting a thin endoscope through the nose to observe the swallowing process and assess any abnormalities. It provides a direct view of the swallowing mechanism and helps evaluate the function of the throat and esophagus during swallowing.

Videolaryngostroboscopy (VLS)

This diagnostic procedure utilizes a flexible endoscope with a specialized light source to assess the vocal cord vibrations during speech. It helps visualize vocal fold movement and assess the overall health and function of the larynx.

Digital Strobe Voice Analysis

This advanced voice analysis technique uses specialized software and equipment to assess voice quality, pitch, and vocal cord function. It provides detailed measurements and visualizations of vocal fold vibrations, aiding in diagnosing and treating voice disorders.

These diagnostic tests, along with a thorough evaluation of your symptoms and medical history, enable our specialists to accurately diagnose and determine the most appropriate treatment for your voice and swallowing concerns.
