Transbronchial Cryobiopsy

This lung biopsy procedure is offered as an alternative to surgical lung biopsy in patients with interstitial lung disease. The tip of the catheter freezes to minus 70 degrees Celsius, which allows for a larger biopsy sample when compared to conventional bronchoscopy with forceps biopsy.
