CT scan is one of the advanced medical imaging techniques.
BODY CT SCAN
Bronchoscopy is the direct observation of lung airways and ducts after the nose and mouth, esophagus, pharynx, and larynx. Lung airways include trachea and main bronchi. Using special devices, these airways can be viewed and various diseases such as tumors, infection and inflammation, external objection, and bleeding can be investigated. One of the main reasons for bronchoscopy is the early detection and treatment of lung cancer. This cancer is the most dangerous type. Therefore, high-risk individuals such as smokers should be under medical supervision in case of their need for this test.
What is the common procedure of bronchoscopy?
Bronchoscopyt is currently performed thus that after adhering to initial preparations like fasting, the patient would go under general anesthesia or sedatives depending on the type of bronchoscopy. Then, the specialist inserts inserts as non-flexible tube (similar to endoscope) called bronchoscope into the patients throat and airways through the noes or mouth, and goes down insofar as it can go to check the airway.
What is virtual bronchoscopy and how is it performed?
Virtual bronchoscopy is a procedure in which no tube is inserted into the patients airway, but the general shape and inner surfaces of the patients airways and lung tissue will be drawn and reconstructed by doing a CT scan of the lungs and using advances computer software. Therefore, any lesion of tumor will be shown. The procedure is very simple. That is the patient is asked to hold his/her breath and, then, lung CT scan will be performed. No further anesthesia or care is required.
What are the advantages of virtual bronchoscopy to conventional bronchoscopy?
in virtual bronchoscopy, the patient tolerates the least discomfort. This is because nothing is inserted into the patients body and there is no need for anesthesia or sedatives. A Another advantage of this method is that is there is any severe stenosis in the airways, bronchoscope tube cannot pass through, but in the virtual bronchoscopy, airways can also be shown after stenosis. Meanwhile, in virtual bronchoscopy. Virtual bronchoscopy takes less time than the conventional method.
Given that the individual receives radiation in virtual bronchoscopy, is it dangerous for patients?
The advanced technology of this method exposes the patient to the least required amount of radiation. That is, in this test, the patient is exposed to a radiation equal to one typical CT scan of the lung which is completely safe.
What should be done for virtual bronchoscopy?
At present, virtual bronchoscopy is performed in this clinic and there are experts here for performing and interpreting it. Thus, after the diagnosis of specialists and their request for performing virtual bronchoscopy, you can contact Pardise Noor Clinic to carry out this safe, secure procedure as soon as possible.
