Paediatric examination. Image 7 of 14. Doctor examining a young girl's throat using a tongue depressor. The depressor has a light and magnifying lens at the back of it, which allows the doctor to see the back of the throat more easily. An inflamed (sore) throat is commonly due to a streptococcal bacterial infection. For a sequence of images showing a paediatric examination, see M825/831-843.
