Caption: Bronchoscopic image showing the human vocal cords at rest - the cords appear separated. The vocal cords move in relationship to each other to interfere with the airflow out of the larynx and thus produce the audible vibrations that constitute speech, song and other vocal noises. The white leaf-shaped structure in centre of image is the epiglottis, which protects the entrance to the larynx when food is being swallowed. The bronchoscope is a type of endoscope, a flexible cable carrying a light source and fibre optics waveguides that allows a doctor a view of otherwise inaccessible areas of the body.
