The Basic Principles of Lung Ultrasound
With the progress and development of medical science, ultrasound has become an indispensable part of clinical work, and its applications are expanding. Originally considered to be unfeasible by many doctors [1, 2], lung ultrasound has been applied and is changing the neonatal intensive care treatment process. Real-time ultrasound can be used to evaluate the anatomy and dynamics of organs and hemodynamic information. This chapter introduces the basic principle and operation skills of two-dimensional and Doppler ultrasonography. It is convenient for doctors who have just started to use ultrasound to understand and master the use of sound instruments, scan and optimize images, and understand image information correctly.
