Focused lung ultrasound (FLUS) scoring results from the thoracic scannings zones

Scanning zoneFLUS score
0. The pleural line is continuous and regular; horizontal artefacts are present1. The pleural line is indented; below the indent, vertical areas of white are visible2. The pleural line is broken; below the breaking point, small-to-large consolidated areas appear with associated areas of white below the consolidated area3. The scanned area shows dense and largely extended white lung with or without larger consolidationsMissing; no film recorded or ultrasound not performed in zone
