  • Nasopharyngolaryngoscopy scope: When we suspect your child may have laryngomalacia, the provider may recommend this test to further evaluate your baby’s condition. During this test, which is done in your doctor’s office, a tiny camera that looks like a strand of spaghetti with a light on the end is passed through your baby’s nostril and into the lower part of the throat where the larynx resides. This allows your doctor to see your baby’s voice box.
  • X-ray of the neck
  • Airway fluoroscopy – dysphagia, upper gastrointestinal series, esophagram
  • Microlaryngoscopy and bronchoscopy –  a test that allows the doctor to look into your child’s airway (larynx and bronchi) using a small telescope.
