Introduction And Importance: Foreign body aspiration (FBA) in adults may be asymptomatic or symptomatic. Fever and cough are the most common symptoms of Coronavirus infection and other causes of pneumonia. Regardless of the etiology of pneumonia, the first step in the treatment of FBA-associated pneumonia is to remove the foreign body from the airway. Read More

Background: Lung cancer screening with low-dose computed tomography has demonstrated at least a 20% decrease in lung cancer-specific mortality, but has the potential harm of unnecessary invasive procedures due to false positive results. We report the outcomes of a structured multi-disciplinary lung cancer screening program in an area of endemic histoplasmosis.Methods: A retrospective review of patients undergoing lung cancer screening from December 2012 to March 2019 was conducted.

[Background] Electromagnetically Navigated Bronchoscopy (ENB) is currently the state-of-the art diagnostic and interventional bronchoscopy. CT-to-body divergence is a critical hurdle in ENB, causing navigation error and ultimately limiting the clinical efficacy of diagnosis and treatment. In this study, Visually Navigated Bronchoscopy (VNB) is proposed to address the aforementioned issue of CT-to-body divergence. Read More

Background: Bronchoscopy serves as direct visualisation of the airway. Virtual bronchoscopy provides similar visual information using a non-invasive imaging procedure(s). Early and accurate image-guided diagnosis requires the possible highest performance, which might be approximated by combining anatomical and functional imaging. Read More

An 81-year-old man presented with chronic cough, which did not respond to the initiation of combined bronchodilator/inhaled corticosteroid therapy. CT of the chest revealed calcified nodules throughout the trachea sparing the posterior membrane, and tiny peripheral parenchymal nodules with basal interlobular septal thickening and calcification. Flexible bronchoscopy demonstrated endobronchial nodularity from the proximal trachea to the mid-sections of both main bronchi, sparing the posterior membrane. Read More
