English term or phrase: BAL (bronchoalveolar lavage)
Definition from National Center for Biotechnology Info.:
Bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) or bronchoalveolar washing is a diagnostic procedure by which cells and other components from bronchial and alveolar spaces are obtained for various studies. One of the main advantages of BAL is that it can be done as a day care procedure. Material obtained by BAL can give a definite diagnosis in conditions such as infections and malignancies.
