Literature suggests that lung ultrasonography (LUS) can have diagnostic accuracy better than CXR
and comparable to CT scan in diagnosing lung pathologies (3, 5-9).
and CT Scan chest revealed herniation of affected lobe, with mediastinal shift in 2 patients of CLE on the left side and right para tracheal cyst in case of bronchogenic cyst (Figure 1-C).
PA revealed an infiltration in the right lower lobe with effusion (Figure 2).
Greater CG external borrowing at market rates (9.0% to 9.25%) and some at less than 24-month maturities have weakened Suriname's external debt service ratio to 17.6% of CXR
relative to the current 'B' median at 11.7% in 2018.
Pleural thickening identification by CXR
alone was difficult to assay as such in.
The selection procedure was managed by a national board-certified radiologist who had 5 years of experience in CXR
Our protocol includes regular CXR
, but abdominal imaging is omitted due to high rates of retroperitoneal disease control.
Thus, the majority of patients without PE (51.7%) had non-PE finding(s) on CTPA that were not apparent on CXR
. Despite this, combining type III and nil-non-PE finding groups would indicate that 81.1% of scans did not alter management in any way, and the remaining 18.9% required some form of intervention or follow-up.
Through review of systems, pulmonary disease was suspected prompting a CXR
. A thorough history revealed abdominal pain which was corroborated by physical examination findings.
A diameter of the induration of [greater than or equal to] 10 mm was considered as positive PPD and further investigation with CXR
After enrollment, all patients were admitted to the high-altitude disease ward and underwent LUS, CXR
, and a physical examination.
A repeat CXR
six weeks postoperatively continued to demonstrate an elevated right hemidiaphragm and rightsided pleural effusion, unchanged from his previous CXR
