Bronchus and bronchial stent. Fly-through coloured 3D computed tomography (CT) scan travelling from the trachea (windpipe) down through the right bronchus and a bronchial stent (just after halfway through the clip) to reach the bronchioles in the right lower lobe of the lung. This imaging technique is known as a virtual bronchoscopy. Stents are devices that are implanted to keep collapsed or blocked airways or blood vessels open.
