Summary

The provider uses a laryngoscope to look directly inside the larynx, which is the voice box, to detect any abnormality. To properly visualize difficult areas, the provider uses an operating telescope or microscope. He may or may not perform tracheoscopy to visualize the trachea, which is the wind pipe, from inside to detect any abnormality. This code represents a diagnostic procedure.
