Malignant pleural mesothelioma diagnosis

Patients with exudative pleural effusion, especially a history of asbestos exposure, should be considered for diagnosis of malignant pleural mesenchymal dermatoma. Chest CT can confirm the diagnosis. Chest CT examination can determine whether the pleural calcification or the bone structure has been destroyed. When the tumor invades the diaphragm and chest wall, MRI imaging is better than CT imaging. Although hydrocyte smear, transthoracic pleural biopsy, and hydrocyte mass sections may make the diagnosis of malignancies, they may not differentiate metastatic pleural adenocarcinoma from malignant mesothelial carcinoma.
