Procedure for LUS step-by-step at CHOP

Scanning

 

Right Lung:

A)   
Right Upper Anterior (along mid-clavicular line) – Clip sliding from clavicula to nipple line, followed by one M-Mode acquisition.

B)   Right Lower Anterior (along mid-clavicular line) - Clip sliding from nipple line to costal margin, followed by one M-Mode acquisition.

C)   Right Lateral (along mid-axillary line) - Clip sliding from axilla to costal margin (where you visualize the lung-diaphragm interface), followed by one M-Mode acquisition.

 

Left lung:

A)   Left Upper Anterior (along mid-clavicular line) - Clip sliding from clavicula to nipple line, followed by one M-Mode acquisition.

B)   Left Lower Anterior (along mid-clavicular line) - Clip sliding from nipple line to costal margin, followed by one M-Mode acquisition.

C)   Left Lateral (along mid-axillary line) - Clip sliding from axilla to costal margin (where you visualize the lung-diaphragm interface), followed by one M-Mode acquisition.
