"Welcome to Voicedoctor.net where you can find medically oriented information about your vocal cords, the voice and hoarseness."
The following quote is found on the Physician tab at www.voicedoctor.net:
"VOICE DISORDERS represents the opinions of its author - James P. Thomas, M.D. It is you attempt to inform you, the web-surfer, about voice disorders from a physicians perspective. It is specifically not meant to establish a doctor patient relationship with you. I have an office in Oregon where patients who wish to be seen and establish a relationship may reach me. The information on this site represent my understanding of the voice and are primarily related to my study with other physicians, most particularly laryngologists. Journal references are provided where appropriate. This site has not been peer reviewed (like all web sites) as a medical journal would be. There is no advertising on the site. Please understand the contents of this site and probably most sites with medical information in this light."
This site includes:
Anatomy: Photos and diagrams of the vocal cords and the parts with the medical terminology
Photos: Photos of various medical problems of the vocal cords such as vocal nodules and polyps, bowing, paralysis, reflux and throat cancer.
Video clips of vocal cords in motion: Quicktime videos of the vocal cords in motion. I hope you have a good internet connection.
Audio recording of vocal pathology: Audio recordings of various types of spasmodic dysphonia.
Case histories: Case histories of various disorders with photos/audio or video
This is a very useful site for faculty teaching voice disorders at the graduate level. The site is easily navigable and consists of copious multimedia material which demonstrates normal and abnormal anatomy and physiology along with technical aspects of videostroboscopy. Although the author is an Otolaryngologist the site is specific to laryngology and as such relates very well to speech-language pathologists.
Vidoes are linked to youtube so most multimedia will play easily regardless of browser.

Good way to introduce pictures and video and voice samples into the classroom via laryngoscopy. Negatives are that there is not a mention of Speech Pathologists role in voice treatment nor is ASHA mentioned in the links.
A student would be able to go through the web site and view anatomy of the vocal cords and surrounding area during a diagnositic test and problem solve and/or discuss with others in a group.
