A bronchoscopy is performed with a small flexible tube (bronchoscope). The scope is inserted through your nose or mouth and will be used to look at your airway. This is typically performed when you are asleep at the beginning of a thoracic surgery operation to evaluate the anatomy of the airway, and to assist in the staging of thoracic cancers.
