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