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...
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...
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...
The study aims to determine the level of knowledge and skills to recognize and decompression of tension pneumothorax
Bedside ultrasonography for detection of pneumothorax after transbronchial lung biopsies in lung transplant patients
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 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 ...
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...
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...
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. ...
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.
