Respiratory doctors are specialised in performing bronchoscopy and can request tests such as lung function tests, CT scans and blood gases to help diagnosis. Respiratory doctors can treat a number of common conditions including COPD (smoking lung disease), asthma, fibrosis, lung cancer, bronchiectasis and asbestos-related lung disease.
