  • Thoracentesis – a procedure to remove fluid or air from the pleural space surrounding the lungs
  • Sleep Studies – such as Polysomnography, Partial Sleep Study are conducted to evaluate and diagnose sleep-related breathing disorders like sleep apnea
  • Chest Radiography – X-ray imaging of the chest to assess the structure and condition of the lungs and surrounding structures
  • Computed Tomography (CT) Scan – a detailed imaging technique that provides cross-sectional images of the chest, allowing for better visualisation of lung structures and abnormalities
  • Pulmonary Rehabilitation – a comprehensive program that combines exercise, education, and support to improve lung function, reduce symptoms, and enhance overall quality of life for individuals with chronic respiratory conditions
  • Bronchial Thermoplasty – a minimally invasive procedure that involves applying controlled heat to the airway walls to reduce the excessive smooth muscle present in conditions such as severe asthma
  • Lung Biopsy – involves obtaining a small tissue sample from the lung for further analysis, often to diagnose lung diseases or evaluate lung nodules or masses
