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, passed through the nose or mouth and into the airways. This can help to diagnose your lung condition by allowing 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
