Their 36 Fig. 5. A typical lymph node conglomerate of an aggressive lymphoma with several lymph nodes of low echogenicity. The sonographic examination shows the facet formation with lymph nodes abutting each other. shape is round to spherical and they are mostly sharply delineated. Echogenicity is low and posterior acoustic enhancement may be found. Color Doppler reveals wellstructured hypervascularity which is similar to inflammatory nodes [1, 2]. It may, therefore, be difficult to discriminate between lymphoma and reactive lymph nodes, but still ultrasound – at least of superficial lymph nodes – is more valid than are CT or MRI (fig.

Several studies have shown reasonable correlation between the volume of an effusion estimated with planimetric measurements and its square dimensions [19–21]. Such geometric calculations are hampered by the uneven distribution of fluid in the presence of pleuropulmonary adhesions. 5-MHz curvilinear probe; moderate, if the space is greater than a Transthoracic Ultrasound one-probe range but within a two-probe range, and large, if the space is bigger than a two-probe range .
