Bronchoscopic examination

This is a movie of a bronchoscopic examination starting with a slow drive through the pharynx into deeper parts of the tracheobronchial system. Simultaneously you can watch a bronchoscopic tube passing through a 3-D model of the tracheobronchial system. It is possible to chose between different sections of the respiratory tract by clicking the buttons: pharynx, trachea, right and left lung. Using the operating panel at the bottom of the screen window enables you to stop and start the movie any time. Additionally the slider can be shifted to move to a certain film section. The return button brings you back to the menu, where you can choose between the different sections of the respiratory tract.
