Chest ultrasonography, also known as USG, is used to evaluate the health of organs and structures in the chest. An ultrasound of the chest is a type of imaging test. It examines the architecture and organs of the chest using sound waves. It can assist your doctor in determining how well your lungs and heart are functioning.
If there is an excess of fluid, ultrasound can help determine whether it is exudate (as seen in inflammatory, cancerous, or infectious conditions) or transudate (fluid that has leaked from blood or lymph vessels for various reasons). It can also be used to evaluate the heart's valves.
• This test covers the lungs, heart, aorta, trachea, oesophagus, thymus, lymph nodes, and the gaps between the lungs and the chest wall.
• This examination can also assess blood flow to the chest organs.
• The USG of the chest determines the type of extra fluid. Exudate is seen in inflammatory, malignant, and infectious situations, while transudate is blood spilt.
Depending on your healthcare provider's instructions, you should plan to arrive early. Arriving early allows the testing to proceed on time. Eat and drink nothing for four hours before your exam. Medications: Check with your doctor to see if you should take your regular medications before the chest scan.
To capture the images, a trained technician (sonographer) presses a small, hand-held device (transducer) against the area being studied and moves it as needed. The transducer sends sound waves into your body, collects them, and sends them to a computer, which generates the images.
Depending on the area of the chest to be examined, you will be positioned on an examination table, either lying on your back or side, or sitting up with your arms raised and hands clasped behind your neck. Ultrasound gel is applied to the area of the body that will be examined with ultrasound.
This test is safe and takes less than an hour to complete.
