Imaging appearance of EP consists of either parenchymal destruction with absence of fluid or presence of streaky or mottled gas or it contains either renal or perirenal fluid and bubbly or loculated
gas or collecting system gas.
The diagnosis of tuberculous empyema is suspected on computed tomography imaging by finding a thick calcified pleura and thickening surrounding loculated
On ultrasound imaging, retroperitoneal lymphangioma may appear as a multi loculated
hypoechoic or anechoic fluid filled mass with internal septations.
It also showed a loculated
, irregularly marginated collection in relation to the pubic symphysis extending anteriorly and posteroinferiorly communicating along the tract between the two pubic rami.
A biliary leak from the cystic duct stump with loculated
collection was encountered in another patient who was managed conservatively.
Ultrasound guidance may be required in case of loculated
83%) out of 48 tubes and loculated
spill in 6 (24%) patients, respectively (Table 2).
Adhesions may obscure organ interfaces causing atypical radiologic findings such as obliteration of peritoneal space, loculated
fluid collection, and attraction and distortion of adjacent organs.
US-based clinical stage pharmaceutical company Lung Therapeutics, Inc has enrolled the first patient in a Phase I a/b clinical trial for LTI-01, designed to treat loculated
pleural effusions, the company said.
Ampicillin/sulbactam was replaced by teicoplanin after 9 days of treatment due to the incomplete resolution of pneumonic consolidation and the presence of minimal loculated
fluid in the left pleural cavity seen on chest X-ray and pleural USG.
Unilocular, multilocular, or multiple well-circumscribed radiolucent lesions surrounded by a thin radiopaque border with a smooth or loculated
periphery are the typical radiographic features of KCOTs (11).
In 10 patients ultrasound-guided percutaneous drainage was used for loculated
bile collections with resolution of the bile leak in six patients.
