Abstract

Despite its clear advantages, laryngeal high-speed videoendoscopy (LHSV) has not yet been accepted as a routine imaging tool for the evaluation of vocal fold vibration due to the unavailability of methods to effectively analyze the huge number of images from the LHSV recording. Recently, a promising LHSV-based analysis method has been introduced. The ability of this analysis method in studying the vocal fold vibratory behaviors had been substantially demonstrated. However, some practical aspects of its clinical applications still require further attention. Most fundamental is that the criteria for the measurement input ie, a segment of interest (SOI), which has not been fully defined. Particularly, the length of the SOI and the location along the sample, where it needs to be selected require further confirmation. Meanwhile, the analysis using any options of a well-delineated glottal area demands verification. Without clear criteria for the SOI, it is difficult to demonstrate the relevance of this analysis method in clinical voice assessment. Therefore, the aim of the present study is to establish the criteria for the SOI, which involved the investigations on the length of the SOI and the location along the sample, where it needs to be selected, as well as the use of any options of a well-delineated glottal area for analysis. The participants in the present study consisted of 36 young normophonic females. The methods involved LHSV recording of the images of the vibrating vocal folds. The captured images were then analyzed using the method. The LHSV-based measures from the analyses were compared according to the specified procedures of each investigation. Results indicated that 2000 frames should be used as the SOI length. The SOI could be selected at any location along the sample as long as well-delineated glottal areas were observed. With the current findings, a more conclusive measurement protocol is available to ensure reliable LHSV-based measures. The findings further support this analysis method for clinical application, which in turn promote LHSV as a reliable laryngeal imaging tool in clinical setting.
