The diagnostic accuracy of chest ultrasound for CT-detected radiographic consolidation in hospitalised adults with acute respiratory failure: a systematic review.

Hew M, Corcoran JP, Harriss EK, Rahman NM, Mallett S - BMJ Open (2015)

Bottom Line: Meta-analysis was planned if studies were sufficiently homogeneous and numerous (≥4).All studies were in intensive care, with either a high risk of selection bias or high applicability concerns.Specificity ranged from 0.78 (95% CI 0.52 to 0.94) to 1.00 (0.99 to 1.00).
