Nasopharyngoscopy is an intrusive diagnostic medical procedure that involves the examination of the internal structures of the nose and throat (nasopharynx) using an endoscope inserted through the patient’s nose. A nasopharyngoscopy helps surgeons examine the nose and sinus and detect abnormalities but comes with a few risks of complications such as laceration, bleeding, vomiting, and respiratory collapse. Now, researchers are studying how the use of ultrasound medical devices can reduce reliance on nasopharyngoscopy and prevent harm in patients undergoing neck surgery.

Researchers at Assistance Publique-Hôpitaux de Paris (Paris, France and Institut Curie (Paris, France) have begun a four-year project to test a non-invasive technique called dynamic translaryngeal ultrasound using devices provided by Mindray (Shenzhen, China). The aim is to enable surgeons to quickly and accurately evaluate patients for critical complications following neck surgery. The project involves measuring the motion and vibration of the vocal cords, thereby providing essential insights into patient care. Additionally, the team will integrate voice recordings into the research to develop new understandings and correlations. The researchers will also employ machine learning technology to automate some aspects of the image acquisition process and enhance user-friendliness. Approximately 500 individuals are expected to participate in this study.
