Pleural irregularity (PI), a new ultrasound sign for the study of interstitial lung disease(ILD) in systemic sclerosis (SSC) and antisynthetase syndrome (ASS).

 

PI is useful for evaluation of ILD in SSc and ASS patients and can be incorporated into a diagnostic algorithm in SSc patients to reducing the need for exposure to ionising radiation. PubMed, Clin Exp Rheumatol, 08/27/2015. (Also see Pulmonary Fibrosis)
