TOWARDS COMPUTER DIAGNOSIS OF LARYNGOPATHIES BASED ON SPEECH SPECTRUM ANALYSIS - A Preliminary Approach

Jan Warchoł, Jarosław Szkoła, Krzysztof Pancerz

Abstract

The main goal of this paper is to give the outline of a preliminary approach to creating a computer tool being a diagnosis support system for laryngopathies. This approach is based on speech spectrum analysis. A simple parameter based on a statistical approach is calculated. Two diseases are considered: Reinke's edema and laryngeal polyp. The paper presents a medical background, basic problems, a proposed procedure for the computer tool, and experiments carried out using this tool.
