Laryngoscopy is a medical procedure involving the examination of the larynx, or voice box, using a device called a laryngoscope. This instrument may be a flexible or rigid tube with a light and camera, inserted through the mouth or nose. Laryngoscopy allows healthcare professionals to visualize the vocal folds, surrounding structures, and mucous membranes. This procedure aids in diagnosing various conditions such as vocal fold disorders, laryngitis, tumors, and voice-related issues. Laryngoscopy is a crucial tool for ENT specialists and speech-language pathologists to assess and treat vocal and respiratory health.
