The extent of pulmonary infarction is invariably underappreciated at US, as is the case for pneumonic consolidation. US is also useful in detecting the sequelae of thromboembolic disease such as right ventric- 28 ular overload and dilated hepatic veins. In experienced hands, thoracic US has a sensitivity of 77–89% and specificity of 66–83% for pulmonary embolism [42–44]. However, sonographic detection of pulmonary emboli is currently still reserved for physicians with an interest in US, as pulmonary spiral CT angiography remains the investigation of choice.

7. a Sialoadenitis of the submandibular right gland with inhomogeneous echogenic structure of the salivary gland. b Sialolithiasis (crosses) of the left submandibular gland (GL SM) with dilated ducts and salivary retention (arrows) due to the obstruction. c Pleomorphic adenoma of the parotid gland as two echo-poor tumors of the caudal part of the parotid gland. b c [3, 16]. Branchial cleft cysts are congenital epithelial cysts, which arise in the lateral part of the neck mostly from a failure of the second branchial cleft to obliterate during embryonic development.

US can visualize lung tumours, pulmonary consolidations and other parenchymal pulmonary processes provided they abut the pleura. US is the ideal tool to assist with thoracentesis and drainage of effusions. US-assisted fine needle aspiration and cutting needle biopsy of lesions arising from the chest wall, pleura and peripheral lung are safe and have a high yield in the hands of chest physicians. US may also guide aspiration and biopsy of diffuse pulmonary infiltrates, consolidations and lung abscesses, provided the pleura is abutted.
