Lung Ultrasound Infographic

This lung ultrasound infographic  demonstrates some clinical ultrasound examples of lung ultrasound images.

Lung Ultrasound Lung ultrasonography plays a major role for management of COVID-19 due to its safety, repeatability, absence of radiation, low cost and portability.
