As a retained hemothorax matures, it becomes thick-walled and very echogenic . A. Jain et al. The most dramatic and obvious ultrasonographic finding indicative of a thoracic fluid collection is the sight of a sliver of lung floating in a dark, relatively anechoic background. 3). The lung parenchyma will typically show signs of collapse and alveolar consolidation under these circumstances—B-line artifacts and bronchograms can be seen. There are three signs that are diagnostic of a pleural effusion or hemothorax.
The sonographer needs to recognize that by setting the wall filters too high, one can eliminate low-velocity signals that may be of interest. In general, filters should be set at low levels (50– 100 Hz) . Information displayed in color Doppler imaging includes the direction and velocity of flow. Mean velocities over the entire region of interest are depicted simultaneously, and information on velocity is displayed only qualitatively, based 29 on intensity of color. 39a). The color at the top of the color map indicates flow towards the transducer, while the color at the bottom of the color map indicates flow away from the transducer.
The most common causes included heart failure, atelectasis and parapneumonic processes . Patients who have undergone thoracic or abdominal surgery, as well as those who have sustained thoracic trauma, will frequently accumulate intra-thoracic fluid collections—effusions and, more commonly in trauma patients, hemothorax. Approximately 60 % of poly-trauma patients sustain thoracic trauma and up to 18 % of these patients will require tube thoracostomy for hemothorax during their initial admission .
