The clinical features of pleural disease are often nonspecific and may require complex imaging and histology for diagnosis. The recent improvements in imaging techniques, from ultrasound through to multislice computed tomography and fluorodeoxy glucose positron emission tomography computed tomography, alongside the increased use of medical thoracoscopy have improved the detection and characterization of pleural disease. This article discusses the use of imaging techniques in patients with pleural disease and correlates imaging features with histology.
