Normal female vocal cords

 

Laryngeal stroboscopy examination using high definition, 90° rigid laryngoscope in a young female. In the examination she goes from low to medium to high pitches and then she glides up and down in pitch. This exam demonstrates particularly well how the cricothyroid muscle stretches the vocal cords longer as she goes up in pitch.
