Pulmonary specialists at Swedish diagnose and treat lung illnesses caused by asthma, bronchitis and pneumonia. With the help of sophisticated tests, including MRIs, bronchoscopies, and CT and nuclear scans, we can diagnose diseases such as emphysema, chronic bronchitis, tuberculosis and lung cancer early on. This greatly improves our ability to provide effective treatment
