Bronchoscopy is a procedure used to examine the lungs and airway of the patient. In this procedure, the patient usually receives local or general anesthesia. The doctor will insert a bronchoscope (long, flexible device with camera/light) into the nose or mouth of the patient to view the upper or lower airways, respectively. In some cases, the doctor will use small instruments to take tissue samples from the lungs and/or airways.
