Pulmonary ultrasound helps doctors diagnose diseases other than pulmonary thrombosis
Pulmonary embolism refers to the condition in which one or more arteries in the lung are blocked by blood clots.
In the early diagnosis of pulmonary embolism (PE), lung and vein ultrasound-enhanced pre-test risk stratification performed better than the Wells score. This is the main finding of a study that will be published in the March 2017 issue of the Journal of Academic Emergency Medicine, Academic Emergency Medicine (AEM).
"Pulmonary ultrasonography can quickly and non-invasively allow doctors to literally see the identity of "other errors" other than pulmonary thrombosis.
The study was proposed by Nazerian et al., and other diagnostics, such as pneumonia or pleural effusion, can be shown by transthoracic ultrasound. This data adds to the results of recent systematic reviews and meta-analyses, showing useful overall diagnostic accuracy.
In summary, these papers indicate that pulmonary ultrasound is still present and should be considered when evaluating patients with suspected pulmonary embolism.
"One of the biggest criticisms of the widely used Wells score for estimating the likelihood of potentially fatal thrombosis (PE) in the lungs is the unpredictable definition of its terminology, 'Alternative diagnosis is more likely than PE'," Jeffrey Kline said. Associate Professor, Department of Emergency Medicine, Indiana University School of Medicine, Professor of Cell and Integrated Physiology.
"Most clinicians who believe that alternative diagnostics are more likely than PE to determine the diagnosis. Nazerian et al. show that pulmonary ultrasound can quickly and non-invasively allow doctors to literally see "other errors" other than thrombosis. Identity. This advantage can help them more confidently decide not to order expensive tests, resulting in patients receiving large doses of radiation."
