According to a blog published by John Hopkins Medicine, it is a procedure to “look directly at the airways in the lungs using a thin, lighted tube (bronchoscope)”.

“The bronchoscope is put in the nose or mouth. It is moved down the throat and windpipe (trachea), and into the airways. A healthcare provider can then see the voice box (larynx), trachea, and large and medium-sized airways,” the blog further explained.
