Research Overview

Because of our unique experience in pulmonary asbestosis, sarcoidosis, and collagen-vascular diseases, the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care has become a center for the study of interstitial lung diseases concentrating on:

  • Pathophysiology
  • Epidemiology
  • Diagnosis
  • Treatment
  • Support
  • Scientific Investigation

We offer comprehensive sophisticated techniques including bronchoscopic biopsy and lavage, open lung biopsy, computerized diagnostic chest tomography (CT scans), and nuclear medicine scans.  Our physicians have extensive experience in the care of patients with diffuse lung disease including novel medication, oxygen therapy and lung transplantation.
