Patients with respiratory symptoms such as a cough or asthma may undergo tests depending upon the type of symptoms they experience. These include;

Chest X-ray

A simple x-ray to image the bones and soft tissues in the chest including the lungs and heart.

Bronchoscopy

Bronchoscopy is a procedure to look directly at the airways in the lungs using a small flexible camera called a bronchoscope.

CT scan of the chest

CT scan is now a routine investigation. It uses X-rays and computer technology to create images of the body.

Lung scan

A lung scan is an imaging test to look at your lungs and help diagnose certain lung problems. A lung scan may also be used to see how well treatment is working.

Peak flow measurement
