Flexible Laryngoscopy and Tracheoscopy
SuperCoder Answered Fri 11th of January, 2019 07:33:43 AM

Hello louise,

Thank you for your question.

 

Laryngoscopy refers to a procedure used to view the inside of the larynx (the voice box), whereas, Tracheoscopy is an inspection of the interior of the trachea by means of a laryngoscopic mirror.

If a provider is performing tracheoscopy to examine the trachea and related anatomy, then larynx can also be examined through the same scope.

In this scenario, laryngoscopy would be considered inclusive in Tracheoscopy.

 

Please feel free to write if you have any question.

Thanks
