Discover the benefits of ultrasound for the lung

Assess Pulmonary Pathologies using Vevo Ultrasound

High frequency ultrasound represents a fast, non-invasive method for identifying pulmonary pathologies such as:

  • Pleural effusion
  • Pleural thickening 
  • Pleural defects
  • White lung
  • Heart failure with preserved ejection fraction

Vevo ultrasound is also an ideal option for non-invasive induction of your lung cancer models using image-guided injection.

 

Healthy Lung

 

Characteristic artifacts: 

  • Bright pleural line at top

  • ​A-lines - Curved, bright lines between dark rib shadows

Diseased Lung

Pleural thickening can be observed.

Lung infection
Lung infection can be detected and compared to healthy lung tissue.

 

Pleural effusion can be seen along with B-lines coming down from the pleura.

In more severe cases numerous B-lines appear together as white lung (observed in interstitial-alveolar sydrome).
