PHD Pulmonologists Use New Diagnostic Technology
Pulmonologists at Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas are the first in the Dallas-Fort Worth area to use a new type of bronchoscopy that utilizes global positioning-like technology to generate 3-D images of the far reaches of complex lung structures. This electromagnetic navigational bronchoscopy is expected to help pulmonologists better diagnose lung cancer, pneumonia and various pulmonary infections.
