Thoracic Ultrasonography for the Pulmonary Consultant

October 19 @ 9:15 am - 10:30 am CDT


Thoracic ultrasonography is a noninvasive and readily available imaging modality that has important applications in pulmonary medicine outside of the ICU. It allows the clinician to diagnose a variety of thoracic disorders at the point of care. Ultrasonography is useful in imaging lung consolidation, pleural-based masses and effusions, pneumothorax, and diaphragmatic dysfunction. It can identify complex or loculated effusions and be useful in planning treatment. Identifying intrathoracic mass lesions can guide sampling by aspiration and biopsy. Image interpretation will be performed through review of cases with live audience response interaction from learners.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. 1. Understand the knowledge base required to perform thoracic ultrasonography and interpret cases.
  2. 2. Integrate general thoracic ultrasonography with other radiography modalities.
  3. 3. Incorporate interpretation skills required for thoracic ultrasonography.
  4. 4. List appropriate uses of thoracic ultrasonography practices.
