Laryngoscopy is an examination that allows a doctor to look at the back of your throat, your voice box (larynx) and vocal cords with a scope called laryngoscope. There are two types of laryngoscopy, and each uses different equipment. Indirect laryngoscopy is performed in a doctor’s surgery using a small hand mirror which is held at the back of the throat. Your doctor shines a light in your mouth and wears a mirror on his or her head to reflect the light to the back of your throat. L aryngoscopy (flexible or rigid) lets a doctor see deeper into the throat. The scope is either flexible or rigid. Flexible scopes show the throat better and are more comfortable for the patient.
