Figure 2: This M-mode image demonstrates a linear, laminar pattern in the tissue superficial to the pleural line (arrow) and a similar linear pattern deep to the pleural line. This phenomenon, known as the “stratosphere sign” or “barcode sign” indicates absent lung sliding and suggests the presence of pneumothorax at this interspace
