Bronchoscopy

Bronchoscopy at Pinehill Hospital

What is Bronchoscopy?

A bronchoscopy is a procedure that allows your doctor to see your airways and lungs.

During a bronchoscopy, your doctor inserts a bronchoscope, that is a thin tube attached with a light and a camera on the end, through your nose or mouth.

Your doctor uses the bronchoscope to see your airways and to take photographs or videos of them. They may also take a sample of tissue, called a transbronchial biopsy, to analyse.

The bronchoscope will probably be in your airways for 20 minutes or less and may be slightly uncomfortable.

The results of your bronchoscopy help your doctor to make a diagnosis and plan the best treatment for you.
