Lung Consolidation

Abstract

In cases of lobular and segmental pneumonia, large amounts of air are displaced from the lung as a result of extensive fibrinous exudation. Affected lobes or segments are depleted of air and sink in water. The phase of engorgement and hepatization, i.e., the first week of the disease, offers good conditions for pathological echo transmission. In this phase, pneumonia is imaged well on the sonogram. In the phase of lysis, the inflamed portion of the lung is ventilated to an increasing extent. Air reflexes superimpose deeper infiltrations. The image on sonography at this time may underestimate the actual extent of disease.
