Objective: This study investigated the inter-rater and intra-rater reliability of four basic visual perceptual parameters (lesion size rating and glottal configuration) in laryngo-stroboscopic evaluation. Study Design & Method: Two hundreds and fifty-five laryngo-stroboscopic video samples were evaluated by three raters on four measurements: 1) mass lesion size rating, 2) amplitude of vocal fold vibration, 3) supraglottic activity, and 4) shape of the glottal closure using the modified Stroboscopy Examination Rating Form. Results: Good inter- and intra-rater reliability were found in rating the lesion size (0.75-0.81, p=0.001), antero-posterior supraglottic activity (0.64, p=0.001) and glottal closure (0.65, p=0.001). Inter-rater reliability in evaluating the medio-lateral supraglottic activity and the amplitude of vocal fold vibration were low to moderate (0.50 and 0.46 respectively, p=0.001), while the intra-rater reliability was more variable (0.2-0.70). Conclusions: The findings indicated that the evaluation of static structures like lesion size rating, the antero-posterior supraglottic compression and the glottal closure is a relatively reliable method. The evaluation of dynamic structures, like the vocal fold vibratory amplitude measure was, however, found to be of low reliability.
