Abstract

Thoracic ultrasound, once thought to be of least consideration due to presence of air in the lungs has now become standard practice in the evaluation of various pleuro-pulmonary disorders. Pulmonary physician-led bed side chest ultrasound is authentic, safe, quick, cost effective and helps in clinical decision making, in patients
with complicated pleural, pulmonary and chest wall processes.
