Laryngeal High-Speed Videoendoscopy: Rationale and Recommendation for Accurate and Consistent Terminology
Deliyski, Dimitar D.; Hillman, Robert E.; Mehta, Daryush D.
Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, v58 n5 p1488-1492 Oct 2015
Purpose: The authors discuss the rationale behind the term "laryngeal high-speed videoendoscopy" to describe the application of high-speed endoscopic imaging techniques to the visualization of vocal fold vibration. Method: Commentary on the advantages of using accurate and consistent terminology in the field of voice research is provided. Specific justification is described for each component of the term "high-speed videoendoscopy", which is compared and contrasted with alternative terminologies in the literature. Results: In addition to the ubiquitous "high-speed" descriptor, the term endoscopy is necessary to specify the appropriate imaging technology and distinguish among modalities such as ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging, and nonendoscopic optical imaging. Furthermore, the term "video" critically indicates the electronic recording of a sequence of optical still images representing scenes in motion, in contrast to strobed images using high-speed photography and non-optical high-speed magnetic resonance imaging. "High-speed videoendoscopy" thus concisely describes the technology and can be appended by the desired anatomical nomenclature such as laryngeal. Conclusions: "Laryngeal high-speed videoendoscopy" strikes a balance between conciseness and specificity when referring to the typical high-speed imaging method performed on human participants. Guidance for the creation of future terminology provides clarity and context for current and future experiments and the dissemination of results among researchers.
