Thoracoscopy is used to visualize the lungs and the entire space surrounding the lungs. The area surrounding the lungs is called pleural space. Doctors usually go for the thoracoscopy procedure when the less invasive tests do not provide conclusive results.
Let’s proceed ahead and completely understand what exactly is thoracoscopy.
Thoracoscopy is a procedure in which the doctor uses a thin, flexible tube with a light and small video camera at the end of the tube. The tube is put inside the human body through a short cut near the lower end of the shoulder blade between the ribs.
