Bronchial Biopsy or Bronchial Specimens

This are specimens which are taken during a bronchoscopy, the biopsies may be washings, brushings or tissue specimens.  “Washings” are taken when a very small amount of fluid is put in the area being examined and then drawn out again and placed into a specimen pot this will contain cells and/or infective tissue which is then sent to the laboratory for microscopic examination. “Brushings” can also lift cells from the surface being examined and this too is sent for examination. Another biopsy is where a very tiny piece of tissue from inside your lung is removed at the point where the tumour is. This is then placed in a specimen pot and sent to the laboratory.
