Black Lung
A lung disease that results from breathing in dust from coal, graphite, or manmade carbon over a long period of time. Also known as coal worker’s pneumoconiosis.

Bronchitis is inflammation of the main air passages to the lungs. Bronchitis may be short-lived (acute) or chronic, meaning that it lasts a long time and often recurs.

Lung Cancer
The term "Lung Cancer" refers to cancers of many types that occur in the lungs.

Endobronchial Ultrasound (EBUS)
A special type of bronchoscope with an ultrasound probe is inserted into the airway. This provides physicians with improved imaging, access to harder to reach areas and allows for targeting smaller areas of interest. Tissue  samples can be collected for analysis.

Pulmonary Hypertension
Pulmonary Hypertension is increased blood pressure specifically in the arteries of the lungs.
