• chest
  • Imaging in thoracic non-Hodgkin lymphoma begins with standard chest radiography. (medscape.com)
  • Posteroanterior (PA) chest radiograph in a man with thoracic non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) shows mediastinal widening due to grossly enlarged right paratracheal and left paratracheal nodes. (medscape.com)
  • Posteroanterior (PA) chest radiograph in a 16-year-old male adolescent with thoracic non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) shows subtle enlargement of the lower paratracheal lymph nodes. (medscape.com)
  • It received several different names, according to the country where it was adopted: mass radiography, miniature chest radiograph (United Kingdom and United States), roentgenfluorography (Germany), radiophotography (France), schermografia (Italy), photoradioscopy (Spain) and photofluorography (Sweden). (wikipedia.org)
  • Compared with supine chest radiography, with CT or clinical course as the gold standard, bedside sonography has superior sensitivity (49-99% versus 27-75%), similar specificity (95-100%), and can be performed in under a minute. (wikipedia.org)
  • Although radiography or CT scanning is generally feasible, immediate bedside detection of a pneumothorax confirms what are often ambiguous physical findings in unstable patients, and guides immediate chest decompression. (wikipedia.org)
  • pneumothorax
  • Clinical treatments may also cause injury to the long thoracic nerve (iatrogenesis from forceful manipulation, mastectomies with axillary node dissection, surgical treatment of spontaneous pneumothorax, post-general anesthesia for various clinical reasons, and electrical shock, amongst others).

  • pulmonary
  • Radiography can also help determine if disease is focal, multifocal or diffuse and can give a general idea of anatomic severity (i.e., how much of the pulmonary parenchyma appears to be involved and if the changes are mild, moderate, or severe). (avmi.net)
  • diagnostic
  • Abreu's first landmark contribution to the radiography of soft tissues (until then not much utilized as a diagnostic radiographical method, due to the low definition of images) was to develop an x-ray densitometry method, by comparing the degree of white density of biological tissues to water's and to other highly dense references, such as bones, and to point out its value for radiodiagnosis.

  • vertebral
  • Using a measurement device, this length is positioned at the start of the 4th thoracic vertebra, and the number of vertebral bodies spanned by the length is determined. (vin.com)
  • posteriorly by the first four thoracic vertebral bodies. (wikipedia.org)

  • trauma
  • There are numerous ways in which the long thoracic nerve can sustain trauma-induced injury. (wikipedia.org)
  • Tube thoracostomy may be done prior to imaging when patients have sustained blunt or penetrating thoracic trauma and display unstable hemodynamics, have respiratory failure with absent or decreased breath sounds, show tracheal deviation, or have serious penetrating injuries. (wikipedia.org)
  • medical
  • In 1916, Abreu started to work at the Hôtel-Dieu and had his first contact with medical radiography, which had been discovered by the German physicist Wilhelm Röntgen just 20 years before. (wikipedia.org)
  • lower
  • The mediastinum can be divided into an upper (or superior) and lower (or inferior) part: The superior mediastinum starts at the superior thoracic aperture and ends at the thoracic plane. (wikipedia.org)
  • mass
  • Abreu's ideas for a new mass screening radiography apparatus was made true by the construction of a first device by the Lohner House, a representative of Siemens in Rio de Janeiro. (wikipedia.org)
