This book presents a complete picture of the art and science of stroboscopy. It 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.
Declan Costello, Post-CCT Fellow in Laryngology, Journal of Laryngology and Otology (2009):
"In the first half of the book, covering the basics of stroboscopy, a comprehensive and easy-to-understand explanation of stroboscopy is presented. This does not, readers will be pleased to hear, explore in detail the mathematical principles of how stroboscopy light sources work, but provides enough information for the clinician to be able to understand the basic principles of the equipment. ... This is a beautifully presented book and serves as an excellent atlas of benign laryngeal lesions."
Melin Tan, MD, Annals of Otology, Rhinology, & Laryngology (2011):
"...a signification contribution to the laryngology literature and provides a comprehensive guide to understanding stroboscopy and its clinical application. Clear schematic illustrations and beautiful color clinical photographs accompany the text."
