Example text

The depth of the lesion has to be measured and the length of the biopsy throw adjusted. Colour Doppler ultrasonography is useful to make sure no large vessels are in the biopsy path. Complications Pneumothorax can occur, more commonly after biopsy, but also after fine-needle aspiration of pulmonary lesions. It can be recognized immediately after or during the procedure if the lesion suddenly disappears and a broad hyperechoic layer appears directly underneath the chest wall with distal reverberation artefacts.

The cursor should be perpendicular with the endocardium 01 both the septum and the free wall • Change to short-axis view and ensure the M-mode cursor bisects a symmetrical LV cavity • Record M-mode tracing, ensuring endocardium on both sides 01 the septum, and the LVFW can be seen. Make sure papillary muscles are not transected. It is acceptable to see chordae within the LV cavity Measurements and calculations • From still images, the standard LV measurements can be obtained • An ECG is essential for accurate M-mode measurements.

The curvilinear probe is placed directly caudal to the xiphoid and angled cranially. The diaphragm- lung interface is seen as a continuous, bright. curvilinear structure covering the surface of the liver (arrowed). 23 Chapter 2 Basics of thoracic ultrasonography Therapeutic pleural fluid aspiration is performed under ultrasound guidance if the effusion is loculated and exact needle placement is the only method to drain the thorax adequately. A 16-22 gauge needle, depending on the size of the patient and the cellularity of the fluid , is connected to an extension set with a three-way stopcock.
