Imaging with computed tomography (CT) has been used (1) to evaluate the position of the arytenoids if there is a suspicion of dislocation and (2) to investigate the distal airway, because patients with posterior glottic stenosis are usually at risk for subglottic or tracheal stenosis from previous intubation trauma.
