Rigid bronchoscopy may be helpful in the differentiating underlying etiologies of hemoptysis, localizing the bleeding site, identifying lung cancer, and even treatment of the underlying cause of hemoptysis in case of visible endoluminal lesions. Other diagnostic studies for localizing the site of bleeding in a patient with hemoptysis include angiography and aortography.
