Figure 1: LUS scores. *P <0.01 TRANSV versus LONG.

Mentions: We enrolled 38 patients (21 males, age 60 ± 16 years, BMI 24.7 ± 4.7 kg/m2) corresponding to 456 ICSs. In 63 ICSs, a tissue-like pattern was visualized in both techniques. In the other 393, LONG versus TRANSV pleural length was 2.0 ± 0.6 cm (range 0.8 to 3.8; variance 0.31) versus 3.9 ± 0.1 cm (range 3.0 to 4.3; variance 0.1) (P < 0.0001), B-lines per scan were 1.1 ± 1.6 versus 1.8 ± 2.5 (P < 0.0001), coalescent B-lines were detected in 24 versus 30% (P < 0.05) and subpleural consolidations in 16 versus 22% (P < 0.05), respectively. LUS scores' prevalence significantly differed in LONG versus TRANSV (Figure 1).
