Chest sonography is a longtime strategy within the stepwise imaging prognosis of pulmonary and pleural illness. it's the approach to option to distinguish among stable and liquid lesions and permits the investigator to make an unequivocal prognosis with no exposing the sufferer to high priced and tense strategies. This e-book offers the state-of-the-art in chest research by way of ultrasonography. a couple of first-class illustrations and the compact textual content supply concise and easy-to-assimilate information regarding the diagnostic approach.

They can also demonstrate an effusion in the pleural recesses, but on the whole these are nonspecific or completely inconspicuous (Loddenkemper 1994). 3). The parietal pleura is generally hypoechogenically thickened, especially during the early stages of pleuritis (Fig. 25; . 3 Sonographic findings in pleurisy (frequency). (From Gehmacher et al. 1997) Rough appearance and interruption of the normally smooth pleura (89,4%) Small subpleural consolidations of between 0,2 and 2,0 cm (63,8%) Localized parietal and basal pleural effusions (63,8%) .
Using preferably high resolution transducers, one can depict the predominantly moderately echogenic swellings of the parietal pleura with its often smooth border and the lung shifting against these plaques during respiration. Not even small effusions should occur together with these plaques. Plaques may also appear as flat formations running out into the normal pleura (Fig. 34, J. Reuss, unpublished data). 3 • Solid Pleural Changes . Fig. 36 Mesothelioma.

2005). If the pleurodesis is not entirely successful, distinction between residual effusion with septation, lung invasion or partial atelectasis of the lung is better achieved by sonography than by radiological imaging procedures (Fig. 24). 6 Pleurodesis In cases of malignant pleural disease with recurrent large pleural effusions and subsequent dyspnea, mainly in pleural carcinosis, pleurodesis is a great boon as a palliative measure. Best results are achieved by performing thoracoscopy with talc pleurodesis.
