The Pulmonary Diagnostic Lab at Sentara Leigh Hospital is certified by the American Thoracic Society (ATS) and performs tests based on ATS standards. Pulmonary Diagnostics Technicians perform diagnostic testing for pulmonary (lung) disease and medication delivery to prevent or treat patients with a special type of pneumonia. Different types of breathing tests are performed to determine the presence or absence of pulmonary disease. When a pulmonary disease is present, the extent of the disease and the progression of the disease can be determined through subsequent testing.
Tests may include medication delivery with additional testing for reaction to the drug administered. Board-certified pulmonologists interpret test results. All patients are seen and tested based on a physician referral.
