Flexible bronchoscopy and rigid bronchoscopy

A flexible fibreoptic bronchoscopy clinic runs each week on Tuesday mornings and patients are examined under conscious sedation with topical airway anaesthesia.

Diagnostic procedures include endobronchial and transbronchial biopsy as well as wedged bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) to retrieve alveolar inflammatory cells for differential leukocyte profiling in cases of suspected interstitial lung disease.
