Kay proudly announces that the video textbook, Assessing Dysphonia: The Role of Videostroboscopy, Model 9235, comprised of three DVD-Videos and one eBook CD-ROM, is now available to Kay stroboscopy customers.
The work of phoniatrician Guy Cornut, M.D., and ENT surgeon, Marc Bouchayer, M.D., this encyclopedic set includes approximately 5 hours of video with 127 patients, 20 of which are cases provided for self-assessment. It covers an expansive range of voice pathology from the dysfunctional disorders to lesions requiring microsurgical intervention, with special sections devoted to the problems of childhood dysphonia, the vocal problems of singers, and the use of videostroboscopy in therapeutic follow-up.
Since its introduction, the work has continued to receive much critical acclaim. In 2000, prior to being digitally re-mastered by Kay, the video textbook was the recipient of the George Davey Howells Memorial Prize in Otolaryngology, as the most distinguished published contribution to the advancement of otolaryngology during the preceding five years.
Called a “chef d’oeuvre, or masterwork,” by Janina K. Casper, Ph.D., SUNY Health Science Center, Syracuse, NY, in the foreword to the video textbook, she goes on to assert that “careful viewing and reviewing...will enhance the videostroboscopic image interpretation skills of even a well-experienced clinician.”
Writes Peak Woo, M.D., Grabscheid Voice Center, Mount Sinai Medical Center, New York, NY, in his foreword, “This video textbook is a beautifully crafted output of a long and fruitful collaboration from two world leaders in phoniatry and phonosurgery.” It “should advance the subject of voice assessment using videostroboscopy for many years to come.”
In addition to accompanying all new strobe orders, Assessing Dysphonia: The Role of Videostroboscopy will be given away, free of charge, to any customer who completes our upcoming online survey.
