Vocal Fold Imaging

Vocal Fold Imaging

Description: Using optical coherence tomography (OCT), we are able to use infrared light to take images of vocal fold vibratory patterns, as well as the surrounding laryngeal tissue. It is similar to ultrasound, but it provides higher-resolution images. OCT can measure how tissues vibrate in response to sounds and covers the frequency range of 0.2–16 kHz. We use an endoscope in the mouth for these studies.
