Tests & Screenings
Finding the source of your brain or neurological condition is one of the first steps in proper treatment. At Valley Baptist Health System, we offer a wide range of tests and screenings at our hospital. Among common tests and screenings:
ENDOBRONCHIAL ULTRASOUND BRONCHOSCOPY
Endobronchial Ultrasound Bronchoscopy (EBUS) is a procedure in which an ultrasound bronchoscopy tube is inserted through the mouth or nose into the lungs to obtain images.
LUNG CANCER SCREENING
Although many helpful questionnaires and other tests are available, the only recommended screening test for lung cancer is the low-dose Computed Tomography (CT), in which the lungs are scanned for cancer-related changes.
PULMONARY FUNCTION TESTING
Pulmonary Function Testing involves assessing the volume, capacity, flow rate and gas exchange of the lungs. They provide a portrait of lung function and can help diagnose some lung disorders.
