Stroboscopy and High Speed Imaging of the Vocal Function, Second Edition presents a complete picture of the art and science of stroboscopy. This unique professional resource includes not only comprehensive coverage of the imaging process, but also the disease process that exists in benign lesions, cancer, and neuropathology. Comparisons of normal images with pathologies are included to enhance readers’ diagnostic skills, and the use of stroboscopic images before and after therapy to determine results enhances their clinical skills. The book also covers the entire range of laryngeal imaging for diagnostics, including rigid endoscopy, videostroboscopy, fiberoptic laryngoscopy, and high-speed imaging.

Written by a physician who works in a multidisciplinary environment, the book outlines the roles of the otolaryngologist, speech-language pathologist, voice scientist, and singing teacher in the clinical examination. Unparalleled full-color illustrations appear throughout.

From the Foreword

“Dr. Woo brings new information to the study of the voice through his expertise in stroboscopy, including the techniques to obtain the best video images and to interpret these images. He demonstrates that stroboscopy is one of the clinician’s most relevant working tool. More importantly, he combines the role of stroboscopy with how the tool is used for teaching, patient education, diagnosis, and research. Dr. Woo’s passion for the study of the voice, his unique expertise and talent for sharing his knowledge with others have allowed him to write a textbook that is enjoyable to read and provides a wealth of new visual information about the art and science of the larynx.  Dr. Woo also stresses throughout the book that, thanks to the constant improvement in stroboscopy and the unique collaboration between the otolaryngologist and the speech-language pathologist, we have gained a better understanding of the voice and its disorders. Finally, he challenges us to continue to improve our understanding of the human voice by continually seeking innovative technologies, asking thought-provoking questions, and pursuing collaboration among voice professionals.”
