Definition : Laryngoscopes designed to observe the glottic action during phonations by focusing a stroboscopic light through a lens. Laryngostroboscopes usually include a constant and/or flashing light source, a camera, and a microphone; they are typically attached to a recording system and printer. These devices provide a slow-motion view of the vocal folds (i.e., true vocal cords) as they vibrate, permitting the assessment of phonatory function; detect lesions; and follow the course of treatment for the patient. Laryngostroboscopes are mostly used for larynx and vocal cord examination during phonation studies in voice-diagnosing laboratories.
