Enhanced axial CT (A) shows diffuse pleural thickening (arrow) with a maximum thickness of 3.17 mm. US image for the corresponding lesion on CT (B) shows diffuse pleural thickening (arrowheads) with a maximum thickness of 3.25 mm. The needle pathway length, measured as the needle length through the pleural lesion, was 6.54 mm (asterisk). Pleural puncture angle (exact value not indicated) is depicted as the angle between the outer line of the pleura and the biopsy needle (thin arrow).
