  1. DIAGNOSTIC TESTS CONDUCTED.
 
!) Pulmonary Function Tests:
        Pulmonary Function Tests (PFT's) are useful in diagnosing various lung disorders. They also measure the degree of impairment due to disease. Pulmonary Function Tests are also used frequently to assess preoperative risk.
Various Tests done are:
  •  Spirometry (PFT) and Reversibility Testing
 

 
 
 
  • Diffusion capacity of carbon monoxide (DLCO)
 
  • Lung volume (FRC, TLC)
  • Six minutes walk test (6 MWT).
2) Flexible Video Bronchoscopy
. A fibreoptic Bronchoscopy system with video and photographic capability is used for performing bronchoscopies which helps in the complete visual assessment of air passages and in making an accurate diagnosis of infection, cancerous  changes, and also in obtaining biological samples for pathological examinations.

  Various Bronchoscopic Procedures Done are
  • Bronchoscopic Alvoelar Lavage(BAL)
  • Bronchoscopic Wash and Brush
  • Transbronchial Needle Aspiration(TBNA)
  • Transbronchial lung Biopsy(TBLB) etc
3) Pleural Procedures done are
  • Pleural aspiration and biopsy
  • Intercostal tube drainage and Pleurodesis
4) Other Tests done are :
  • Fine needle aspiration Cytology and biopsy
  • Lung biopsy via CT guided
  • Bronchial artery embolisation with Radiology Dept for Hemoptysis Patients.
