PRESENTER: Michael Johns, MD
AUDIENCE: Undergraduate, graduate students, Clinical Fellows, Clinicians, novice and experienced SLPs and SLPs who would like to transition from school-based SLP to medical-based SLP.
Description: This one hour session will introduce the listeners to a practical approach to interpretation of laryngeal endoscopy with videostroboscopy. A framework for critical assessment of voice to predict laryngeal pathology will be presented. Following this, a case-based approach will be used to describe application of the 4 “M’s” approach to laryngeal endoscopy with videostroboscopy interpretation: Masses, Mucosa, Movement, “Mucosal Wave”.
Following completion of this session, participants will be able to:
1) Describe a framework for critical assessment of voice to predict laryngeal pathology
2) Demonstrate basic interpretation of laryngeal videostroboscopy
3) See how a laryngologist applies interpretation of laryngeal videostroboscopy to make a diagnosis
