Harmonic-to-noise ratio (HNR) expresses the relative amounts of periodic (regular and repetitive) and aperiodic (irregular and non-repetitive) components in the sound signal. Pathological voices tend to exhibit higher jitter, shimmer and HNR than normal voices. Multi-parameter indices are also used. The Dysphonia Severity Index (DSI)40 is compiled from: highest frequency (F0-High in hertz), lowest intensity (I-Low in decibels), maximum phonation time (MPT in seconds) and jitter (%). The DSI ranges from +5 (perceptually normal) to –5 (severely dysphonic).
