white-light video bronchoscopy

A term for the usual format of bronchoscopy, which is often coupled with ancillary procedures (forceps biopsy, brush biopsy, bronchoalveolar lavage, bronchial washings and transbronchial needle aspiration) to distinguish it from newer bronchoscopy formats and techniques—e.g., autofluorescence bronchoscopy, narrow-band imaging, endoscopic ultrasound, endobronchial ultrasound, electromagnetic navigation, optical coherence tomography and confocal fluorescent laser microscopy.
