Overview

Ultrasound may be helpful in the diagnosis of pleural effusion among patients with adenocarcinoma of the lung.[1]

Ultrasound

  • Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to make images of structures in the body.[1]
  • Ultrasound is used:
  • In combination with bronchoscopy (endobronchial ultrasound) to look at and take samples from the lymph nodes in the mediastinum
  • To look for any fluid in the lungs or chest
