Diagnoses with Video Laryngoscopy

Few diagnostic methods are as effective as video imaging for identifying pulmonary disorders. A video laryngoscopy is one of the tools utilized by Onslow Medical Specialties Clinic in Jacksonville, North Carolina. During this procedure, the back of the throat is examined via an endoscope camera that is inserted through the mouth. Before this point, the patient is typically given general anesthetic so they will not feel the scope. This is typically used for a range of diagnoses investigating any of the following symptoms:

  • Persistent cough
  • Inflammation
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Blockage of the throat

Benefits of a Video Laryngoscopy

By directly viewing the throat and larynx, a doctor can see tumors and other potential causes for your discomfort. This allows us to more accurately diagnose the problem and thus apply a more applicable treatment. The imaging can also be used in lieu of other procedures that may be less effective. Some of the conditions that may be diagnosed by a video laryngoscopy include these:

  • Laryngeal disease
  • Laryngopharyngeal reflux
  • Papilloma
  • Cancer of the throat or vocal cords
