Bronchoscopy in London, including autofluorescent bronchoscopy

  • We use latest fibreoptic bronchoscopes under conscious intravenous sedation.
  • Autofluorescent bronchoscopy allows examination of the airway for subtle abnormalities that may be due to pre-cancerous changes that are not clearly visible using conventional bronchoscopy.
  • Rigid bronchoscopy, performed as a surgical procedure, is also available to our patients when appropriate.

Endobronchial Ultrasound in London

  • This novel technique allows non-invasive evaluation of the mediastinum and represents a safe alternative to surgical mediastinoscopy for most patients. It is performed under conscious sedation. Using the ultrasound component, it is possible to sample abnormalities in the chest to establish the diagnosis and also to assess response to treatment. We are uniquely placed to provide this new technique that is only available in a small number of centres in the UK and Europe.
