Abstract

PURPOSE: The changes due to interstitial lung diseases (ILDs) in the lung parenchyma reveal comet tail artifact (CTA) that is defined on ultrasonography (USG), and is a type of reverberation artifact. We planned to investigate the significance of thoracic USG in the evaluation of the effect of ILD on pulmonary tissues in the present study.
