Bronchial Thermoplasty (Asthma)
An outpatient procedure approved by the FDA for the treatment of severe persistent asthma in patients 18 years and older whose asthma is not well controlled with inhaled corticosteroids and long-acting beta-agonists. The bronchoscopy-based procedure uses a small catheter to deliver controlled energy to the airways of the lung to reduce the amount of excessive airway smooth muscle (ASM). This reduction in ASM decreases the muscle’s ability to constrict the airways, resulting in a decreased frequency of asthma attacks. Learn more about bronchial thermoplasty.
Pulmonary Function Tests
A painless way to measure how well your lungs are working. Results of the tests may explain shortness of breath, various types of lung problems, and whether breathing problems are a risk during general anesthesia.
Pulmonary Exercise Stress Test
Measures how much air moves in and out of your lungs when you exercise.
An airway exam using a specialized scope to diagnose lung disease and cancer and the severity of the condition.
A non-invasive, painless test that produces multiple images or pictures of the inside of the body. These images show cross-sectional views of the area being studied, producing greater clarity than a traditional X-ray.
A type of nuclear medicine imaging scan in which small amounts of radioactive material are injected, inhaled or swallowed. This is done to diagnose a variety of diseases and abnormalities within the body.
A medical procedure to help diagnose disease or injury inside your body. A chest X-ray is a very common exam because radiographs (the X-ray picture) can show diseases of the heart and lungs.
