Use of Endobronchial Ultrasound Scope (EBUS) Transducer to Identify Pneumothorax-A Feasibility Study

Endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) is a technique that uses ultrasound along with bronchoscope to visualize airway wall and structures adjacent to it. Pneumothorax is a known complication fro...

Comparison Of Chest Ultrasound Techniques To Identify Clinically Significant Pneumothorax

Patients with chest trauma undergo ultrasound to detect a collapsed lung. Two techniques have been described. A single view for each hemi-thorax, and multiple views for each hemithorax. Th...

Lung Ultrasound for the Postoperative Diagnosis of Pneumothorax in Children

This study will be conducted to determine the advantages and limitations of sonography compared with chest radiography, in the detection of post procedure iatrogenic pneumothorax in patien...

Are EMS Personnel Prepared to Identify and Decompression of Tension Pneumothorax

Intraoperative hypoxia secondary to pneumothorax: The role of lung ultrasound.

Intraoperative pneumothorax during general anesthesia is a dangerous event. It is a possible cause of sudden intraoperative hypoxia, which can be critical especially in high-risk patients such as thos...

Point-of-Care Ultrasound in the Periarrest Setting-Lessons Learned: A Case Report.

Point-of-care ultrasound may elucidate reversible causes of cardiac arrest, and its use is supported by international guidelines in the periarrest setting. We present a case in which the treatment of ...

Lung Ultrasound to Detect Residual Pneumothorax After Chest Drain Removal in Lung Resections.

Indication for post-drain removal imaging after lung resection is debated. Chest x-ray (CXR) is widely used to confirm lung expansion but not evidence-based. We propose to introduce lung ultrasound (L...

Catamenial pneumothorax: an intriguing cause of recurrent pneumothorax in women.

Thoracic endometriosis (TE) is one of the causes of secondary pneumothorax in women. According to the literature, 1 in 3 premenopausal women with pneumothorax can be diagnosed with 'catamenial pneumot...

Thoracic ultrasound for the detection of rib metastases of non-small cell lung cancer.

Transthoracic ultrasound has lately emerged as a useful diagnostic tool for respiratory physicians in the diagnosis of diverse pulmonary diseases, usually including pleural effusion and pneumothorax. ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The use of ultrasound to guide minimally invasive surgical procedures such as needle ASPIRATION BIOPSY; DRAINAGE; etc. Its widest application is intravascular ultrasound imaging but it is useful also in urology and intra-abdominal conditions.

The use of molecularly targeted imaging probes to localize and/or monitor biochemical and cellular processes via various imaging modalities that include RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; fluorescence imaging; and MICROSCOPY.

An accumulation of air or gas in the pleural space, which may occur spontaneously or as a result of trauma or a pathological process, or be introduced deliberately ( = PNEUMOTHORAX, ARTIFICIAL). (Dorland, 27th ed)

Non-invasive imaging methods based on the mechanical response of an object to a vibrational or impulsive force. It is used for determining the viscoelastic properties of tissue, and thereby differentiating soft from hard inclusions in tissue such as microcalcifications, and some cancer lesions. Most techniques use ultrasound to create the images - eliciting the response with an ultrasonic radiation force and/or recording displacements of the tissue by Doppler ultrasonography.

Use of ultrasound for imaging the breast. The most frequent application is the diagnosis of neoplasms of the female breast.
