RESEARCH ACTIVITIES

  • In the framework of a DFG-funded project, a novel endoscopic system for the examination of the laryngeal adduction reflex (LAR) is being developed and tested in cooperation with the Clinic for Phoniatrics and Pedaudiology (director: Prof. Dr. med. Dr. med. h.c. Martin Ptok) at Hannover Medical School (MHH). A high-speed camera system is used to observe the reflex dynamics. By using image pre-processing and computer vision, the degree of automation and objectivity of this examination procedure is to be increased.
