Temple Lung Center receives 'transformative' seven-figure gift
The Temple Lung Center has received a "transformative" donation from the wife of a former patient, which it will use to build a new and expanded bronchoscopy suite. The seven-figure gift was was made by Nancy Witty in honor of her late husband, Robert, the former CEO of CFCU Community Credit Union in Ithaca, New York. Robert Witty passed away in May 2018, a year after he underwent a lung transplant at Temple University Hospital in North Philadelphia. For hi s follow-up care Witty received treatment… (Source: bizjournals.com Health Care:Pharmaceuticals headlines)

Invasive pulmonary aspergillosis caused by Aspergillus terreus diagnosed using virtual bronchoscopic navigation and endobronchial ultrasonography with guide sheath and successfully treated with liposomal amphotericin B
Invasive aspergillosis is a significant cause of mortality in patients with hematological malignancy. Early diagnosis of invasive pulmonary aspergillosis (IPA) by bronchoscopy is recommended but is often difficult to perform because of small lesion size and bleeding risk due to thrombocytopenia. A 71-year-old woman had received initial induction therapy for acute myeloid leukemia. On day 22 of chemotherapy, she had a high fever, and the chest computed tomography scan revealed a 20-mm-sized nodule with a halo sign. Bronchoscopy assisted by virtual bronchoscopic navigation (VBN) and endobronchial ultrasonography with a guide...

Science Saturday: A robotic GPS for targeting, delivering regenerative biotherapies
A remote-controlled bronchoscope that acts like a GPS system hunts down hard-to-find lung masses and accurately biopsies them, according to a  Mayo Clinic collaborative study. This multisite research, which is published in Annals of Thoracic Surgery, lays the foundation for precisely finding early-stage cancer and targeting it with regenerative biotherapeutics needed to stimulate healing. Artificial intelligence gleaned from CT scans d irects the robotic fiber optic cable, providing a GPS-like pathway to tiny nodules, or masses, that manual bronchoscopes… (Source: News from Mayo Clinic)
