A patient with left-side pneumonia.


On the ultrasound we can see signs of alveolar consolidation („shred sign“), in colour Doppler, vascular supply is present. „Lung pulse“ is present - transmitted pulsation from the heart contractions and  the disappearance of „lung sliding“, a sign of exudative inflammation.

The „shred sign“ is a non-homogeneous hypoechoic shredded structure, blurry, as if it has been shredded to demarcate the surrounding area.




ChW - Chest Wall
ShS - „shred sign“ as a sign of alveolar consolidation
P - pulmonary parenchyma
