Abstract

28 patients have undergone diagnostic and/or therapeutic aspiration of fluid containing masses at Jackson Memorial Hospital over the last 8 months. The majority were diagnosed and aspirated under ultrasonic control while in a few cases CT was required. In 19 patients, a therapeutic aspiration was attempted. In 17, this was successful, none of these patients required surgical intervention. The role of ultrasound and CT in the diagnosis and treatment of fluid collection is emphasized. The technique for both diagnostic and therapeutic aspirations is stressed as well.
