Ultrasound Guided Pleural

What is an Ultrasound-Guided Pleural Test?

Pleural effusion, also called "water on the lungs," is when too much fluid builds up between the pleura layers outside the lungs. The pleurae are narrow membranes that cover the lungs and the inside of the chest cavity. They help keep breathing smooth and easy. The pleura usually has a small amount of fluid in it.
