Overview

There are no echocardiography associated with adult bronchiolitis. Ultrasound may be helpful in the diagnosis of adult bronchiolitis. Findings on an ultrasound suggestive of adult bronchiolitis include aberrant lung pattern and subpleural consolidations.

Echocardiography/Ultrasound

  • There are no echocardiography associated with adult bronchiolitis.[1]
  • Ultrasound may be helpful in the diagnosis of adult bronchiolitis. Findings on an ultrasound suggestive of adult bronchiolitis include:
    • Aberrant lung pattern
    • Subpleural consolidations
  • Ultrasound in this case has an accuracy that correlates to diagnosis at 90.6% of the time.
  • Ultrasound has the added benefit of being non-invasive, rapid, accurate and avoids exposure to radiation.
