Pope at the Gemelli hospital on the Tiber Island for CT scan of the lungs

Micheletto (Aipo): “Quick exam to see the lungs perfectly”

According to Claudio Micheletto, director of the complex pneumology operational unit at the University Hospital of Verona and president of the Italian Association of hospital pulmonologists (Aipo), a quick exam can provide a clear view of the lungs and help to detect pneumonia, infections, or tumors. This statement comes in light of Pope Francis’ recent visit to a hospital in Rome for a high-resolution CT scan.

The 87-year-old Pontiff has faced health challenges in recent months, including cancellations of hearings due to flu and knee pain, as well as a lung infection that required hospitalization. This latest visit for a CT scan suggests ongoing monitoring of his respiratory health.

While it is speculated that the Pope underwent a high-resolution CT scan rather than a bronchoscopy during his hospital visit, experts emphasize the importance of regular check-ups and quick diagnostic exams to ensure early detection and treatment of any potential issues.
