Imaging tests

Pulmonologists perform various imaging tests to examine different structures in the lungs and chest. These tests help in finding any structural abnormalities that are causing a person’s respiratory symptoms.

pulmonologists may use the following imaging tests:

Chest X-rays: Pulmonologists take Chest X-rays to monitor chest areas that consist of lungs. They examine the overall health of the lungs and check for infections such as pneumonia or lung masses such as cancer.

Chest CT scans: CT scans help pulmonologists in finding any signs of emphysema, lung cancer, and pleural effusion using chest CT scans.

Chest ultrasound: Pulmonologists perform this type of test to examine the structures inside the chest and the pleural space. It is the area between the lungs and the chest wall.

Bronchial provocation test

Pulmonologists perform bronchial provocation tests to evaluate the sensitivity of the patient lungs. There are mainly three types of tests in this

Irritant challenge: In this procedure, your pulmonologist exposes you to an asthma trigger. Asthma triggers can be smoke or a chemical. It helps pulmonologists to study and examine how your airways react.

Exercise challenge: Pulmonologists conduct this test by making you exercise on a treadmill or stationary bike. They will observe and study how your airways reach during this procedure.

Methacholine challenge: In this process your pulmonologists make you inhale increasing doses of the chemical methacholine. It causes airways to constrict with low doses among people with asthma and with high doses indicate a lack of asthma. If this test fails then your pulmonologists look for another cause of symptoms.
