  1. Bronchoscopy

    A brochosopy is a procedure in which a long, lighted scope is inserted into the lungs in order to examine the airways of the lungs and to assess lung function.

  2. Chest Fluoroscopy

    Chest fluoroscopy may be performed when the motion of the lungs, diaphragm, or other structures in the chest need to be evaluated.

  3. Chest Ultrasound

    Chest ultrasound is a procedure in which sound wave technology is used alone, or along with other types of diagnostic methods, to examine the organs and structures of the chest.

  4. Chest X-ray

    A chest X-ray is used to examine the chest and the lungs and other organs and structures located in the chest.

  5. Computed Tomography (CT or CAT) Scan of the Chest

    CT/CAT scans are more detailed than standard x-rays and are often used to assess the organs of the respiratory and cardiovascular systems, and esophagus, for injuries, abnormalities, or disease.

  6. Lobectomy

    A lobectomy is a surgical procedure that removes one of the lobes of the lungs.

  7. Lung Biopsy

    A lung biopsy is a procedure in which tissue samples are removed with a special needle to determine if cancer or other abnormal cells are present.

  8. Lung Scan

    A lung scan is a procedure that uses nuclear radiology to assess the function and structure of the lungs. It is most often performed when problems with the lungs and respiratory tract are suspected.

  9. Lung Transplantation Procedure

    In a lung transplant, one or both diseased lungs are removed and replaced with a healthy lung from another person.

  10. Mediastinoscopy

    A mediastinoscopy is a surgical procedure performed to examine the mediastinum - the space behind the sternum (breastbone) in the middle of the chest that separates the two lungs.

  11. Oximetry

    Oximetry is a procedure used to measure the oxygen level—or oxygen saturation—in the blood.

  12. Peak Flow Measurement

    Peak flow measurement is a procedure that records the amount of air flowing out of your lungs. Peak flow can be measured with either a spirometer or a peak flow meter.

  13. Pleural Biopsy

    A pleural biopsy is a procedure in which a sample of the pleura (the membrane that surrounds the lungs) is removed with a special biopsy needle or during surgery to determine if disease, infection, or cancer is present.

  14. Positron Emission Tomography (PET Scan)

    Positron emission tomography (PET) is a specialized radiology procedure used to examine various body tissues to identify certain conditions. PET may also be used to follow the progress of the treatment of certain conditions.

  15. Pulmonary Angiogram

    A pulmonary angiogram is a procedure that uses a combination of contrast dye and X-rays to examine the blood vessels in the lungs and evaluate blood flow to the lungs.
