An ultrasound machine assumes a single pulse of ultrasound enters the tissues, is reflected off a structure, and returns directly to the transducer for interpretation. When this does not occur ultrasound artefacts are created. Ultrasound Artefacts (there are many different ones) Reverberation artefacts Long path reverberation artefacts (A-lines in lung) Short path reverberation artefacts (B-lines […]
In the presence of a pneumothorax the visceral and parietal pleural surfaces are separated. The point at which these two surfaces meet is known as the lung point Finding a typical lung point confirms that the absence of sliding is due to a pneumothorax.
