High Definition Laryngology 2016

Lecture given at the 2016 European Laryngologic Society meeting on the topic of High-Definition Laryngology.Essentially I describe the way that a combination of technique and equipment lead to the most pixels on the pathology. The more pixels there are on the problem, the better the resolution and understanding of the person performing the diagnostic examination. The video equipment tends to be expensive. Indeed, at this conference Olympus has been showing their Ultrahigh definition 4K video, the setup which cost about $80,000. However, with a bit of lidocaine, good technique, an understanding of video technicalities and outstanding images of laryngeal problems and pathology can be obtained.
