Atlas of FIBEROPTIC BRONCHOSCOPY

Professor Shigeto Ikeda’s invention of fiberoptic bronchoscopy has revolutionized the practice of medicine. As the 21st century progresses, fiberoptic bronchoscopy has become the most common and important procedure in the practice of pulmonary medicine and author have witnessed a tremendous increase in the application of fiberoptic bronchoscopy in clinical practice today.Atlas of FIBEROPTIC BRONCHOSCOPY pdf provides the good image quality which was taken during the bronchoscopy.

Although fiber-optic bronchoscopy was started in the department of pulmonary medicine at King George’s Medical College, Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, India, for the first time in 1986. Since then the photography, record keeping, teaching, and training has become much easier.

This Atlas of FIBEROPTIC BRONCHOSCOPY book was written with the aim of defining an approach to the diagnosis of common pulmonary diseases based on abnormal bronchoscopic findings. The text consists of two parts, the first, a practical introduction and the second, X-ray, computed tomography (CT) and bronchoscopic pictures of interesting cases selected from 2,000 bronchoscopic procedures done in the last 15 years.

Undergraduates, postgraduates, medical students, chest physicians, thoracic surgeons, general physicians having a special interest in pulmonary diseases and otolaryngologists will find this Atlas of FIBEROPTIC BRONCHOSCOPY book as a practical guide.
