Interstitial Lung Disease Program Conditions and Treatments
Temple’s Interstitial Lung Disease Program manages patient diagnosis and care using a multidisciplinary approach that draws on the expertise of specialists who focus on different aspects of care, from thoracic surgeons to radiologists and pulmonologists.

- Medications (including nintedanib and pirfenidone in patients with IPF)
- Pulmonary rehabilitation
- Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO)
- Navigational bronchoscopy and endobronchial ultrasound bronchoscopy (EBUS)
- Standard bronchoscopy with or without transbronchial biopsy
