Laryngoscopy helps to diagnose your larynx, including the vocal cords and the back position of the throat. Laryngoscopy test is divided into different types like direct laryngoscopy and indirect laryngoscopy.
The doctor uses various kinds of laryngoscopes in Direct laryngoscopy, which are thin, long in size with a light in them. A lens or a small video camera is attached to the end of the laryngoscopes.
In the case of indirect laryngoscopy, a light is aimed at the back of the throat. Then a tilted mirror is focused at the back of the throat to observe the vocal cords.

There are various reasons for which your doctor may advise you to perform a laryngoscopy test.
