Study of Thoracostomy Radiology
The Journal of Clinical Radiology and Case Reports, is a peer-reviewed, open access Journal aims to publish the latest developments in radiology. Radiology has long been recognized as the authoritative reference for the most current, clinically relevant and highest quality research in the field of radiology.
Radiology is the medical discipline that uses medical imaging to diagnose and treat diseases within the bodies of both humans and animals.
Thoracostomy involves the insertion of a thin plastic tube into the space between the lungs and the chest wall. The tube may be attached to a suction device to remove excess fluid or air. Or, it may be used in a procedure called pleurodesis in which medication is delivered into the space to decrease the likelihood that fluid will accumulate. Thoracostomy may be performed to treat pneumothorax, also known as collapsed lung.
Pleurodesis is a procedure in which a medication is injected into the pleural space in order to minimize the amount of fluid that can collect there. Unlike temporary procedures such as thoracentesis, pleurodesis is generally a long-term, even permanent solution to prevent the accumulation of pleural fluid.
Chest radiographs are used to diagnose many conditions involving the chest wall, including its bones, and also structures contained within the thoracic cavity, lungs, heart, and great vessels.
The Journal emphasizes high-level medical and clinical research education. Original research articles, reviews, short communications, and letters to the editors in the fields of Clinical Radiology and Case Reports are welcome. Every effort is made to have a speedy and critical peer-review process.
