Biopsy techniques can now avoid conventional surgery by using minimally invasive procedures like endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) to diagnose lung cancer and other chest diseases. A minimally invasive approach allows physicians to perform a transbronchial needle aspiration to obtain tissue and/or fluid samples from the lungs and surrounding lymph nodes. The procedure is less invasive and the recovery time shorter than conventional surgery.
Available tests include:
Pulmonary function tests
Cardiopulmonary stress testing
Endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS)
Exhaled nitrous oxide testing
Transbronchial needle aspiration
