Tests & Treatments

  • Bronchoscopy
    A pulmonologist performs a test called bronchoscopy to diagnose several lung diseases, cancers, infections, nodules or blockage by a tumor.
  • CT Scan
    A series of X-rays that can be used to visualize nearly all parts of the body in 3-D is known as a CT scan.
  • Pulmonary Function Tests (PFTs)
    By assessing lung volumes, capacities, rates of flow and gas exchange, PFTs provide information that, when evaluated by your physician, can help diagnosis certain lung disorders.
