The Video Laryngeal Stroboscopy CD-ROM is an interactive program designed to educate students and practicing clinicians on the use of videostroboscopic diagnosis of voice disorders. This CD-ROM combines video clips, animations, and text in a comprehensive tutorial on the science behind videostroboscopy and the clinical diagnosis of voice disorders using laryngeal videostroboscopic technology. Users are challenged with quizzes following the five units: Theory, Equipment, Procedure, Interpretation, and Disorders. The CD-ROM also provides samples for practicing clinical diagnosis skills. Videostroboscopic samples are included for the user to observe and compare with concepts learned in the tutorial, followed by a beginning rating section to practice diagnosing primary abnormal characteristics, and an advanced rating section where percentages and scaling are used to select the most appropriate ratings for videostroboscopic samples.
