Imaging and Radiology


Lung imaging at the hospitals of Methodist Health System

What is bronchoscopy?

Bronchoscopy is a direct examination of the airways in the lungs. It’s done with a long, thin tube called a bronchoscope that has a tiny light and camera mounted on it. The test can find tumors, blood clots, structural problems, and infections.

Who needs bronchoscopy?

Bronchoscopy may be recommended for people who have symptoms such as persistent and severe cough, coughing up blood, or unusual buildup of phlegm or other fluids in the lungs. It may also be done if a chest X-ray suggests the presence of a tumor or chronic lung infection. Bronchoscopes can also be used to remove a tissue sample for study and for some treatments.

Where is this test performed?

Bronchoscopy is available by the order of a physician. The test is scheduled through outpatient registration.
