Xiong Ye, Hui Xiao, Bo Chen, SuiYang Zhang, James D. Chalmers
2015 PLoS ONE  
We performed a systematic review of the current literature to compare the accuracy of LUS and chest radiography (CR) for the diagnosis of adult community-acquired pneumonia (CAP).  ...  We searched in Pub Med, EMBASE dealing with both LUS and CR for diagnosis of adult CAP, and conducted a meta-analysis to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of LUS in comparison with CR.  ...  Review process Two authors (X.Y and H.X) independently reviewed the articles and ascertained the criteria for inclusion in the pooled data analysis, with disagreements resolved by discussion.  ...
