Paper Abstract

This paper describes a vision guided endoscopic computer system applied in the analysis of static vocal fold images of patients. The system comprises a flexible nasal-endoscope and a PC compatible compatible computer supported by a fully interactive menu-driven software environment which performs the analysis tasks. It is the intention of this paper to present the philosophy of the approach, the construction of the prototype, the results of the investigation and the merits and drawbacks of the prototype at this stage of development. The cost effectiveness of such system being used in private clinics and general hospitals as an expert adviser to the examining doctor will also be discussed.
