Sinusoid sign (ultrasound)

Dr Dan J Bell and Dr Tim Luijkx et al.

The sinusoid sign is a dynamic sonographic sign in M-mode describing the movement line representing the lung towards the pleural line which is displayed as a sinusoidal pattern. Similar to the quad sign, this sign has a high sensitivity and specificity for pleural effusion, which is anechoic in itself.
