Chest ultrasound and color Doppler flow imaging were used to assess the pulmonary nodule of a 24-year-old pregnant woman with dyspnea and hemoptysis. The ultrasonogram showed multiple hypoechoic subpleural nodules. Color Doppler imaging of the nodules revealed characteristics of high vascularity and high blood flow. A percutaneous needle aspiration under ultrasonic guidance confirmed the diagnosis of choriocarcinoma.
