Bronchoscopy is an endoscopic technique of visualising the inside of the airways for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes.
An instrument (bronchoscope),which is thin and flexible, is inserted into the airways,usually through the nose or mouth.Using the bronchoscope, your doctor can view all of the structures that make up your respiratory system including your larynx, traches and the smaller airways of your lungs, which include the bronchi and bronchioles.
Bronchoscopy is usually done to find the cause of a lung problem. Your doctor may take a biopsy sample of mucus or tissue from your lungs during the procedure to test it in a lab.
The emminent team of the Atlas general hospital carry out this procedure with the aim of further bacteriological, cytological, histopathological and imunohistochemical examiations and furher therapies.
