what is a stroboscopy?
During a stroboscopy, the ENT doctor examines your throat with a bendable telescope (strobe) that is a few millimeters thick. A vocal cord examination is called a stroboscopy. This is an examination of the vibration of your vocal cords with a strobe. This device makes flashes of light that make the vocal cord vibration visible. This allows the function of the vocal cords to be properly investigated.
Why a stroboscopy?
If you suffer from voice complaints, it is wise to have the cause investigated. By means of a stroboscopic examination, it is possible to assess the vocal cords in a delayed manner, which allows examining not only the appearance of the vocal cords, but also the way in which the vocal cords move and produce the voice.
What happens after a stroboscopy?
after the investigation
If the nasal and pharynx is numb, you should wait at least an hour before eating or drinking. This is to prevent you from choking.
The ENT doctor will give you the result immediately. This can be done on the basis of the images that have been made.
You can go home after the examination.
What possible risks are there with a stroboscopy?
There are no risks with a stroboscopy. If the nose is numb, the throat may also be numb and you may feel a swollen feeling in the throat. This will disappear within an hour.
