Abstract

Technology is integral to the diverse diagnostics and interventions of Otolaryngology. Historically, major advances in this field derive from advances of associated technologies. Challenges of visualization and surgical access are increasingly overcome by integrating endoscopic, electronic, and robotic instruments. Otolaryngology is often limited to urban areas and large academic centers, making it difficult to allocate care and resources to many underserved populations. The widespread use of technology has important implications in regards to global access to this field as telemedicine is most effectively applied to specialties that are heavily reliant on data and visuals that may be electronically disseminated.
