Rehabilitation specialists at Texas Health Arlington Memorial Hospital use a Video Strobe to investigate disorders associated with hoarseness. Vocal cords are tiny muscles that resonate with vibrations occurring 120 to 240 times per second. The video strobe at Texas Health Arlington Memorial Hospital can take images of the vocal cords in motion. With most people, the vocal cords vibrate symmetrically, so if a strobe light is flashed on them, the vibration pattern can be visualized and a determination made about what can be done to help the patient.
