Qualitative assessment of kymograms and OQ values were obtained from VSK examination of nearly 600 patients with hyper- and hypofunctional dysphonia (HyPo & HyPer). In HyPer dysphonia the OQ was significantly lower compared to HyPo dysphonia. These results make VSK in our opinion suitable for monitoring progress of voice treatment.
