Patients with COVID-19 disease show typical patterns in lung ultrasound. COVID-19 lesions mainly involve the peripheral pulmonary zones which make this disease accessible for pulmonary ultrasound evaluation.

We consider that LUS offers major benefits in managing COVID-19 pneumonia in both the ICU and ER due to its noninvasive assessment and dynamic observation of lung lesions. The major advantages of LUS are the safety, the repeatability as well as the low cost in point of care. With the increased use of bedside ultrasound, patients can be protected from unnecessary radiation and therapy delays. The number of transports of high-risk patients to CT and CXR examinations are also reduced.
