This narrative review focuses on thoracic ultrasonography (lung and pleural) with the aim of outlining its utility for the critical care clinician. The article summarizes the applications of thoracic ultrasonography for the evaluation and management of pneumothorax, pleural effusion, acute dyspnea, pulmonary edema, pulmonary embolism, pneumonia, interstitial processes, and the patient on mechanical ventilatory support. Mastery of lung and pleural ultrasonography allows the intensivist to rapidly...

SARS-CoV-2 epidemics has resulted in an unprecedented global health crisis causing a high number of deaths with pneumonia being the most common manifestation. Chest CT is the best imaging modality to identify pulmonary involvement, but unfortunately there are no pathognomonic features for COVID-19 pneumonia, since many other infectious and non-infectious diseases may cause similar alterations. The adoption of artificial intelligence in biomedical imaging has the potential to revolutionize the id...
This statement summarises basic settings in lung ultrasonography and best practice recommendations for lung ultrasonography in COVID-19, representing the agreed consensus of experts from the Ultrasound Subcommittee of the European Society of Radiology (ESR). Standard lung settings and artefacts in lung ultrasonography are explained for education and training, equipment settings, documentation and self-protection.

Scarce data exist regarding the natural history of lung lesions detected on ultrasound in those who survive severe COVID-19 pneumonia OBJECTIVE: We performed a prospective analysis of point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) findings in critically ill COVID-19 patients during and after hospitalization METHODS: We enrolled 171 COVID-19 intensive care unit patients POCUS of the lungs was performed with phased array (2-4 MHz), convex (2-6 MHz) and linear (10-15 MHz) transducers, scanning 12 lung areas Ches...

Objectives To develop a consensus statement on the use of lung ultrasound (LUS) in the assessment of symptomatic general medical inpatients with known or suspected coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Methods Our LUS expert panel consisted of 14 multidisciplinary international experts. Experts voted in 3 rounds on the strength of 26 recommendations as "strong," "weak," or "do not recommend." For recommendations that reached consensus for do not recommend, a fourth round was conducted to determin...

Differential diagnosis of COVID-19 at the chest computed tomography scan: A review with special focus on cancer patients
Resumen null null La actual pandemia de SARS-CoV-2 plantea numerosos retos sanitarios, entre los que destaca el uso adecuado e interpretacion correcta de las pruebas diagnosticas disponibles en diferentes contextos clinicos. Como cualquier prueba diagnostica, las de SARS-CoV-2 tienen limitaciones metodologicas de sensibilidad (S) y especificidad (E) que determinan su valor predictivo positivo (VPP) y negativo (VPN). Ademas, su rendimiento diagnostico depende del contexto clinico en el que se eva...

The pandemic spread of the new Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has raised the necessity to identify an appropriate imaging method for early diagnosis of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Chest Computed Tomography (CT) has been regarded as the mainstay of imaging evaluation for pulmonary involvement in the early phase of the pandemic. However, due to the poor specificity of the radiological pattern and the disruption of Radiology Centers functionality linked to an ...

Purpose null To evaluate whether there is a change in findings of coronavirus disease 2019 patients in follow up lung ultrasound and to determine whether these findings can predict the development of severe disease. null Materials and methods null In this prospective monocentric study COVID-19 patients had standardized lung ultrasound (12 area evaluation) at day 1, 3 and 5. The primary end point was detection of pathologies and their change over time. The secondary end point was relationship bet...
