The largest study of ultrasound for #COVID19 to date (that I'm aware of) - retrospective, 30 pts with COVID confirmed via PCR, who underwent both lung US and CT

Lung US was compared to CT which was used as the reference standard


All US scans were performed at the bedside by a single physician
-6 region scan per hemithorax (anterior, lateral, posterior divided into upper and lower regions)
-scanning in BOTH longitudinal and transverse
-used BOTH convex and linear probes
-5-8 min per scan

Yet *another* scoring system:
0 pt: normal pleural line, A lines, <3 B lines
1 pt: >3 B lines
2 pt: coalescent B lines
3 pt: consolidation

Total score summed up (0-36 pt):
-none: 0 pt
-mild: 1-7 pt
-moderate: 8-18 pt
-severe: 19+ pt
