Typic images of complete and incomplete lung atelectasis/consolidation in right lower Lobe. a, b Ultrasound and CT imaging of complete atelectasis/consolidation in the right lower lobe (RLL). Tissue-like pattern located above the diaphragm (D) and the liver (L), surrounded by pleural effusion (PE). c Ultrasound imaging of incomplete atelectasis/consolidation in the RLL at the end of expiration. d The pleural line (PL) can be well detected at the end of inspiration, which suggests most of the incomplete atelectasis/consolidation gained recruitment
