As Case i of Figure 1 allows flow of pore water in all the directions, it has a high rate of extraction of pore water compared to other cases shown in Figure 1 and that is why Case i shows maximum coefficient of consolidation value and Case v shows lowest coefficient of consolidation value, although the consolidative soil is identical for all the cases of Figure 1.
A CT scan performed after four cycles of chemotherapy with the combination of cisplatinum and pemetrexed revealed left-sided pleural effusion, a consolidative mass with bronchovascular bundle, and septal thickening, suggesting lung parenchymal involvement and the lymphatic spread of the tumor (Figures 2(a) and 2(b)).
