Bronchoscopy is a procedure that allows the physician to view the respiratory tract through a fiberoptic tube (bronchoscope). The bronchoscope is a flexible tube with a camera at the end. The tube is passed either through the mouth or nose and into the respiratory tract. This procedure also enables the physician to collect samples of lung tissues, cells or fluids.
