1 CORE Case 2 Workshop Petra Lewis MD Professor of Radiology and OBGYN Geisel School of Medicine at DartmouthCORE Case 2 Workshop
2 Learning objectives Understand who should get a pre-op CXR Know what features affect how we manage SPNsKnow some of the ways that we can manage SPNs in patientsUnderstand the radiographic signs of atelectasisBe able to work out when atelectasis is present and what lobe is involvedApply an algorithm to distinguishing the different causes for an opacified hemithoraxRecognize the features of a pneumothorax on different viewsRecognize tension on a radiograph and how to treat itThere is a lot here, may not cover all in one session or be selective
3 What questions/difficulties did you have arising from the case Note down areas that they had problems. If not covered in current session or planned sessions then will come back to at the end
4 Who should get a pre-op CXR? 37 year old man with no cardiorespiratory symptoms currently but a history of asthma pre-op ACL repair70 year old asymptomatic woman pre-op hip replacement45 year old diabetic man with no cardiorespiratory symptoms currently pre-op renal transplantIn which of these scenarios should a patient have a preop CXR (none using ACR guidelines)
5 Who should get a pre-op CXR? Acute cardiopulmonary findings by history or physicalChronic cardiopulmonary disease in the elderly (>age 70), previous chest radiograph within 6 months NOTE available.Possibly:Chronic cardiopulmonary disease in the elderly (>age 70), previous chest radiograph within 6 months available.
7 What factors might affect whether we see a solitary pulmonary nodule? Size, radiographic quality, place in lung (danger zones, blind areas), density, surrounding parenchyma
8 Where might we miss a nodule? Get students identify areas of the lung where we might miss nodules
9 What factors affect how we manage a lung nodule? Patient factorsRadiographic factorsPatients –risk factors, smoking, age, sex, history malignancyRadiographic – size, margins, calcification, presence of other nodules, enhancement
10 Benign hamatoma versus a lung cancer, compare and contrast
11 How can we manage an SPN seen on a CXR? AssessFollow upOpen discussion, fairly superficialIgnoreAssess by CT, Biopsy – CT, open, videoscopic, FDG PETFollow up CT, CXR
12 Fleischner Criteria McMahon et al. 2005 Radiology, 237, 395-400. They don’t need to know details, just that there are criteria that we use to follow SPNs
14 What are the characteristics of atelectasis? Get them to talk about volume loss, opacity, low lung volumes, usually lack of airbronchograms, may be rapid changes
15 What are the causes of atelectasis Get them to describe = Mucous plug (surgery, intubation, poor inspiration, supine posture), viral infections, tumors – b9 and malignant, compressive etc
16 What are the signs of volume loss? Get students identify the structures that can move with volume loss – diaphragms, hilar, fissures, trachea, heart etc
17 Linear or ‘plate like’ atelectasis. What do they see here Linear or ‘plate like’ atelectasis. What do they see here? When might we see this in patients?
18 RUL atelectasis. Tell me what they see, how would they describe it RUL atelectasis. Tell me what they see, how would they describe it? What lobe? Where are the signs of volume loss? What might be the cause in this patient?
21 RUL atelectasisMore difficult example in an ICU patient
22 Pig BronchusJust for fun – what happens when you intubate a patient with a ‘tracheal or ‘pig’ bronchus (0.1-2% patients)? And why do all vet cxrs and diagrams have the right lung on the right (because they exam animals from their backs)
23 LLL atelectasis in a sick ICU patient. What do they see LLL atelectasis in a sick ICU patient. What do they see? Is this pneumonia or atelectasis? Why cant they tell?
24 Same patient 24 hrs later, bring out the rapid changes seen in atelectasis Day 1Day 2
25 RLL atelectasis and RML consolidation. RUL atelectasis RLL atelectasis and RML consolidation. RUL atelectasis. Tell me what they see, how would they describe it? What lobe or lobes? Where are the signs of volume loss??
28 RML atelectasis. What do they see. Compare to the normal on the bottom RML atelectasis. What do they see? Compare to the normal on the bottom. Why don’t you see signs of volume loss? Why don’t you see all of the collapse RML?
29 LUL atelectasis. Get them to describe the findings, Why is this different than RUL atelectasis? Why can we still see vascular markings on the left on the PA? Talk about cause almost always being Ca
31 Total lung atelectasis What would you see if the lung were totally collapsed?
32 Total lung atelectasis Kid with mucous plug in airway
33 DDx of unilateral hemithorax opacification CausesGet them to list the ddx of hemithorax opacification, then bring out key concept of volume loss and how it differs between the causes.
34 Left lung atelectasis. Why do we only see one hemidiaphragm on lateral Left lung atelectasis. Why do we only see one hemidiaphragm on lateral? Why do we see inc retrosternal air? How do we know this patient is s/psurgery not just atelectasis
35 PneumothoraxNote, supine PTX is covered in Case 3/Workshop 3
36 What are the signs of a pneumothorax Get them to talk about signs of ptx – pleural lines, how thick they are, where do you see them?, absent lung markings, collapsed lung etc
37 What can we do to see pneumothoraces better? Views that may help, Lighter (less exposed) film, change parameters on PACS, CLAHE filter, mag up apices, Decubitus (abn side up), Expiratory viewsCT
38 2 patients. Where is the ptx 2 patients. Where is the ptx? Right image is an exp view of patient post biopsy with a hydropneumo ptx
39 Skin folds. Is there a ptx. Why not Skin folds. Is there a ptx? Why not? How does this look different (line thickness, can’t follow, lung markings over apex etc..
40 So you find a pneumothorax… What is your next question ALWAYS? Is there any sign of tension
41 What are the signs of tension? ClinicalRadiographicClinical – dec BP, tachcardia, venous distension, hypoxia etcCXR: shift mediastinum, depressed diaphragms, +/-major lung collapse, small heart (esp onCT compression of RA/RV). Discuss that lung does not have to be completely collapsed.
42 Is there tension? What are the signs? Get them to describe/draw them.
50 Learning ObjectivesKnow the current recommendations for preoperative chest radiographs in people who are healthy and in those with underlying chest and cardiac diseasesUnderstand some of the challenges in detecting small nodules on chest radiographs.Have a concept of the different appearances of pulmonary nodules and their prognostic significanceUnderstand the current status of low dose CT imaging for lung cancer screening.Understand some of the management issues related to pulmonary nodules (including the Fleischner Society recommendations).Have a basic understanding of the use of FDG PET imaging in the management of nodules and lung malignancies.Have reviewed the methods available for nodule biopsyWill understand indications for needle biopsy, how the procedure is done, and the possible complications.Be able to recognize a pneumothorax and understand the meaning and consequences of a tension pneumothorax.Know the options for treating a pneumothorax.Understand the purpose of TNM tumor staging and implications for long term survivalRecognize the common appearances of lobar atelectasis on chest radiographs.Recognize the common appearances of linear and subsegmental atelectasis on chest radiographs.Know the different etiologies that may cause complete opacification of a hemithoraxKnow the expected postoperative appearance of the chest after pneumonectomy.
