PURPOSE: Pleural effusion size estimation can be helpful for guiding the necessity for drainage or in assessing response to therapy in cases of pleural infection or fluid overload. Ultrasonography (US) is a non-invasive and cheap means. Available equations for sonographic effusion volumetry are either rough, sophisticated, or inaccurate. This study attempted to derive an accurate formula for pleural fluid estimation that relies on easily measured parameters.
