Abstract Introduction: Treatment of voice disorders has evolved over the last 50 years into a multidisciplinary process. We examine the history, the evolution of modern examination equipment and techniques, and the current state of the Modern Voice Clinic. We suggest equipment that is essential and some that would be considered valuable adjuncts.

Discussion: We highlight the importance of the clinical history. The origins and evolution of diagnostic equipment and techniques are discussed. Equipment considered essential in the modern Voice Clinic setting is discussed in detail, highlighting the function and the pathologies that each piece can help diagnose. The need for a strong evidence base and ongoing prospective research is explained.

Conclusion: The set-up and constituents of the Modern Voice Clinic are an evolution in progress. Current clinical need requires a multidisciplinary team approach, specialist equipment and a strong evidence base, but the most important diagnostic tool will always remain the taking of a good clinical history.
