Complex diagnosis of parietal formations of the thoracic cavity

Cover Page


The work is devoted to computed tomography (CT) and ultrasound (US) diagnosis of the thoracic cavity diseases, which highlights many of the issues in the literature clearly or not covered at all. Advances in the CT and US technologies have demanded reconsideration of the scientific data about value of these methods in diagnostics of diseases of lungs and pleurae. Now US is widely used in the diagnosis of diseases of the organs and tissues of the abdominal cavity, retroperitoneal space, pelvic organs, cardiovascular system and is insufficiently used for the study of pathological changes of lungs and pleura. The analysis of possibilities of US and CT in diagnosis of parietal thoracic cavity formations and indications for ultrasound are presented, the US technique as well as US semiotics of revealed pathological changes are described. Implementation into clinical practice of modern methods of diagnosis increases the chance of early detection of the disease when it is still possible to use the radical methods of treatment
