Caption: Vocal cords. Three-dimensional computed tomography (CT) scan of the vocal cords in the larynx (voice box). The cords are seen at lower centre in a closed position. They are held open in a V-shape when at rest. The vocal cords help to produce the voice by tightening and vibrating as air is expelled from the lungs. CT scans use X-rays to create slice images through the body, which can be combined to give this 3-D endoscopic view. This virtual endoscopy allows study of the body's internal structures without using invasive techniques.
