Description of the study

Videostroboscopy is an examination of the voice organ. It reveals the structures of the larynx and lower pharynx, makes it possible to check the degree of tension, mobility and condition of the vocal cords, and to detect changes in the larynx, including cancerous ones. The examination is performed by an ENT doctor using a Videolaryngoscope connected to a camera to evaluate the organ.
By illuminating the larynx with a stroboscopic (intermittent) light with a vibration frequency different from that of the vocal folds, the doctor can observe the movements of the vocal folds in slow motion.
The examination is performed in a sitting position in adults and children. The test requires cooperation with the patient.


  • Voice organ assessment.
  • Recurrent laryngitis.
  • Diagnosis of pathological changes in the larynx.
