Thoracic Ultrasound



  • Lung consolidation
  • "Air bronchograms"


So typically when we look at the chest, if the lung is well aerated, we really aren’t going to see the lung, we’ll see the lining of the lung the visceral pleura, but when there’s pathology - consolidation from something such as pneumonia you can actually sometimes see the lung tissue and within the lung tissue you may see areas of air which are going to be bright on US and these are what are called air bronchograms.
