Lung Ultrasound


Recently having attended the last session of the Cochin Radiology Club, I was fascinated by the presentation by Dr. Amel Antony on The role of Ultrasound in the evaluation of Lungs. To actually come to conclusions based on the artefacts due to air is something that is so thrilling for the radio residents down the chain as we are the ones who are on the move in and around ICUs and can have a hands on practical application of the techniques described.

Daniel Lichtenstein has beautifully described the methods of examination in his text (available online). I am exploring it this week as I spend my time in my portable duty 🙂
