Figure 5: Reverberation artifact of the lung occurs as ultrasound waves bounce between the transducer and the pleura. The pleura is shown as a hyperdense white line (black arrow). The reverberation lines (white arrows) represent repetition of the pleural line. The distance between these lines are equal. A comet tail artifact is also shown (black arrow head)
