It is a medical procedure which enables the doctors to take a look inside the airways of your lungs, together with the vocal cord, voice box and numerous branches of bronchi. The test is usually performed by a thoracic surgeon or pulmonologist. It is done to examine the lung disease where the doctor can take samples of your lung tissue for a laboratory test. Bronchoscopy is of two types – a rigid bronchoscope and a flexible fiberoptic bronchoscope. Over the years, the flexible fiberoptic bronchoscope has successfully replaced the rigid bronchoscope because it is easier to perform. a rigid bronchoscope and a flexible fiberoptic bronchoscope
