The mummy of Nehmes Bastet is in good condition and protected by a thin layer of resin. 

Unfortunately she has stuck to the bottom of the coffin and it will take some time to gently extract her so it might be next year before she is scanned.

There are also unconfirmed rumours that canopic jar(s) belonging to the 18th Dynasty burial have been found in the rubble at the bottom of the tomb.  No details or a name yet but it does suggest that there are definitive New Kingdom remains waiting for careful excavation.
