Our team provides diagnostic testing and treatment of pulmonary diseases including:
Endobronchial Ultrasound (EBUS)
EBUS is a minimally invasive procedure that is used to diagnose lung cancer, infections, inflammation, cancer and other diseases. A pulmonologist performs this procedure by using a flexible tube with a scope that has a video camera and an ultrasound probe to visualize the lungs and nearby lymph nodes.
Pulmonary function testing and interpretation
Respiratory therapists perform the testing and the pulmonologists provides interpretation and information about how well the lungs are working. This includes cardiopulmonary exercise testing. Pls. see patient and resources section for more information.
Sleep study, interpretation and treatment
Sleep studies, or polysomnograms, are tests to diagnose sleep disorders like sleep apnea, periodic limb movements of sleep, parasomnias (sleep behaviors), and narcolepsy. They generally involve spending the night sleeping at a sleep laboratory. For the appropriate patient, however, home sleep tests (HSTs) can be used to diagnose obstructive sleep apnea. Pls. see patient and resources section for more information.
