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.
The test is most commonly used to diagnose and evaluate pleural effusion.
Some of the most common causes of pleural effusions are:
• Post-open-heart surgery
• Pulmonary embolism
• Heart failure
• Autoimmune disease
• Inflammatory disease
