POSED BY MODELS. Throat examination. Young girl having her throat examined by a female paediatric doctor. The paediatrician is using a wooden tongue depressor to move the girl's tongue to allow the best view of the throat. This examination is part of a routine check-up, and can also help diagnose the cause of a sore throat or swollen tonsils. Most commonly this is pharyngitis, a bacterial infection of the throat.
