  • Evaluation of the laryngeal adduction reflex via laryngoscopic microdroplet application and image processing
    In this interdisciplinary project, a novel endoscopic system for the examination of the laryngeal adduction reflex (LAR) is being developed and tested in cooperation with the Department of Phoniatry and Pedaudiology (director: Prof. Dr. med. Dr. med. h.c. Martin Ptok) at Hanover Medical School (MHH). The LAR is triggered by the application of an accelerated droplet. A high-speed camera system is used to assess the reflex response. The integration of image processing algorithms increases the degree of automation and objectivity of the diagnostic procedure.
