Video Stroboscopy Methods

Janet Skotko M.Ed, CCC-SLP

January 19, 2004



Please describe the voice recording and analysis and video stroboscopy methods for diagnosing voice disorders.


Since your question is such a broad one, which would require a book-length answer to do it justice, I suggest you being your search by contacting Care of the Professional Voice (voicefound@onrampcom.com) or AHSA's SID 3 (Voice Division). Also, a large ENT's office or a hospital setting may permit you to observe various procedures, to view the results and perhaps to participate in their discussions re findings. The latter is likely the most effective way to learn more.

There is now available the Database of Stroboscopic Recordings of Laryngeal Pathologies (DSRLP). This might be what you are seeking in order to learn more about pathologies you may likely see in a clinic setting. It provides speech samples connected with laryngeal videostroboscopic exams, and both rigid and flexible endoscopies (80 recordings). In fact, most pathologies are represented twice in order for you to recognize the variability within a diagnosis. This has been developed by Kay Elemetrics Corporation as a learning tool. I do not know the cost.

Janet Y. Skotko has been a certified Speech/Language Pathologist for over 25 years. She is presently the Director of The Voice Institute in Tampa, Florida (voiceinstitute@aol.com) and a Board Recognized Fluency Specialist and Corporate Speech Pathologist while still enjoying the areas of voice disorders and communication anxiety.
