What is the best way to diagnose simple pneumothorax


What is the best way to diagnose simple pneumothorax

المعلومة

Recent literature supports the use of bedside transthoracic ultrasound in the hands of experienced emergency medicine physicians as a superior modality for the diagnosis of pneumothorax in comparison to plain chest X-ray, particularly in the supine patient.
However if plain chest X-ray is used, a posterior-anterior (PA) film in full expiration should be used to detect a small pneumothorax.
