If it is present on a previous CXR and remains unchanged over a considerable period of time, pleural thickening is more likely. e. hydropneumothorax, Fig. 8b ) or entrapped within ﬁssures mimicking a tumour. - If the patient cannot stand, a lateral decubitus CXR is sometimes performed to help in the diagnosis of pleural effusion (as the ﬂuid layers out in the dependent position, Fig. 8c). - Ultrasound or CT thorax serve as alternative modalities for early detection of small pleural effusion. Ultrasound has the advantage of not involving radiation, and can be used to guide drainage.

Because of its close proximity to the adjacent ﬁrst rib, brachial plexus and sympathetic trunk, these are involved by local tumour inﬁltration early in the course of the disease producing characteristic clinical signs - Early case of Pancoast tumour is difﬁcult to detect radiologically, particularly on a CXR as there may be only focal apical pleural thickening instead of apparent mass.
