Bronchoscopy

What is a bronchoscopy?

A bronchoscopy is a test, which allows the doctor to look into your windpipe and the air tubes of your lungs.

The doctor uses a thin, flexible tube called a bronchoscope. It is passed through the nose or mouth and down into the airways. The benefits are to diagnose your lung condition.

This allows your doctor to:

See your windpipe (trachea) and airways (bronchi)

  • Look for abnormalities
  • Take photographs
  • Take a sample of lung tissue (called a biopsy)
  • Take a sample of secretions
