camera to see the nose and throat
Our voice is generated in the voice box (vocal cords) in the neck at the mid level of the adams apple. This cannot be seen with a torch by an ordinary doctor. ENT surgeons visualise the vocal cords in the clinic using a warmed mirror through mouth or a flexible camera through the nose. Patient is very comfortable with the camera as there is no induction of gag.(common problem with the mirror through mouth)Patient can talk while doctor is looking through the camera. This is a basic test in the modern ENT clinic.
