Pulmonary Function Laboratory

Pulmonary function tests (PFTs) are noninvasive diagnostic tests that provide measurable feedback about the function of the lungs.

By assessing lung volumes, capacities, rates of flow, and gas exchange, PFTs provide information that, when evaluated by your doctor, can help diagnosis certain lung disorders.

The following are tests carried out in our Pulmonary Function Laboratory:

  • Spirometry (pre and post-bronchodilator responses)
  • Lung volume measurement
  • Diffusion capacity and transfer
  • Metacholine Challenge testing
