Chest ultrasound scan in London is performed by a radiologist.
Chest ultrasonography is an effective method of diagnosing the presence of even a small amount of fluid in the pleural cavities, which may appear pathologically in the course of acute conditions (such as pneumonia and pleurisy or after trauma), but also in chronic conditions (such as heart and circulatory failure) . This test is particularly useful in children in the assessment of inflammatory changes – their resolution during treatment or the presence of complications in chronic infections.
In addition to the fluid, it also allows you to assess the presence of pneumothorax – a very dangerous condition that occurs in the course of injuries or after attacks of severe cough. If you see disturbing symptoms in your chest and are concerned about them, the easiest way to find out what is causing them is to have a chest ultrasound scan.
Chest ultrasound is safe and especially dedicated to pregnant women and children after injuries – it allows to diagnose rib fractures using safe ultrasounds, without the use of harmful X-rays.
