Voice disorders are unfortunately not as uncommon as most people would think. Around 7.5 million Americans have trouble using their voice every day, and not enough is known about this subject to understand how to prevent these disorders. Dr. Deliyski, a researcher at the University of South Carolina’s Arnold School of Public Health, is committed to advancing the scientific understanding of the human voice, and plans to develop a new methodology to help diagnose voice disorders. With the help of Vision Research, this study explores the movements of human vocal folds through laryngeal high-speed video-endoscopy (HSV).
