Severity of lung lesions quantified by thoracic ultrasonography (TUS) at time of bronchopneumonia (BP) diagnosis predicted death among steers not treated for this condition. Further research is needed to confirm that lung lesions detected by TUS can be associated with negative outcomes in cattle with BP that subsequently were treated.

Potential disparities in the diagnosis, treatment, and survival of lung cancer patients with and without disabilities were rarely investigated.
This study aims to evaluate the value of ultrasonography in the diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up of primary thyroid lymphoma. The clinical data of 12 patients, who were pathologically confirmed wit...
To clarify the diagnostic utility of third-look, contrast-enhanced ultrasonography (CEUS) for MRI-detected breast lesions undetectable by unenhanced, second-look ultrasonography (MRI+/US- lesions).
Lung cancer is a histologically, immunologically and therefore morphologically and functionally very heterogeneous group of neoplasms with the highest cancer mortality worldwide. Therefore, the range...
An increasing number of pulmonary lesions-particularly, peripheral lung lesions-are identified with current technological advancements. Notably, the yield of traditional bronchoscopy for the diagnosis...
The purpose of the current study is to prospectively evaluate the usefulness of thoracic ultrasonography in demonstrating effective lung isolation during single-lung ventilation (SLV) in t...
Endobronchial Ultrasound Guided Transbronchial Lung Biopsy With or Without Guide Sheath in Lung Tumors and the Analysis of Echoic Patterns of Lung Tumors and Mediastinal Lymph Nodes, and the Association Between Diagnostic Yield of Transbronchial Lung Biop
1. Endobronchial ultrasonography (EBUS) is useful in localizing peripheral lung lesions. The EBUS, further combined with the guide sheath (GS) technique, has been reported to inc...
Acute respiratory failure (ARF) is a frequent reason for consulting in the Emergency Department (ED) and one of the major clinical problems prompting admission in intensive care unit. In t...
Perioperative lung-protective strategies had been advocated in one-lung ventilation but normal respiratory functions were yet impacted during videoassisted thoracoscopic(VATS) surgery. The...
One of the main challenges of thoracic oncology lies in earlier diagnosis of lung cancer to improve survival rate, wich is about 15% at 5 years. This poor prognosis is often linked to late...
A number of small lung lesions characterized by small round masses of 2- to 3-mm in diameter. They are usually detected by chest CT scans (COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY, X-RAY). Such nodules can be associated with metastases of malignancies inside or outside the lung, benign granulomas, or other lesions.
A surgical specialty concerned with diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the heart, lungs, and esophagus. Two major types of thoracic surgery are classified as pulmonary and cardiovascular.
A developmental anomaly in which a mass of nonfunctioning lung tissue lacks normal connection with the tracheobroncheal tree and receives an anomalous blood supply originating from the descending thoracic or abdominal aorta. The mass may be extralobar, i.e., completely separated from normally connected lung, or intralobar, i.e., partly surrounded by normal lung.
The distance between the anterior and posterior poles of the eye, measured either by ULTRASONOGRAPHY or by partial coherence interferometry.
The capability of the LUNGS to distend under pressure as measured by pulmonary volume change per unit pressure change. While not a complete description of the pressure-volume properties of the lung, it is nevertheless useful in practice as a measure of the comparative stiffness of the lung. (From Best & Taylor's Physiological Basis of Medical Practice, 12th ed, p562)

Pneumonia (bronchopneumonia, lobar pneumonia and double pneumonia) is inflammation (swelling) of the tissue in one or both of your lungs. It is usually caused by an pneumococcal infection caused by bacteria called Streptococcus pneumoniae. However,...
