The image is obtained using a 7.5 MHz transducer. The transducer is in longitudinal orientation and placed perpendicular to the chest wall to scan through the second intercostal space in the mid-clavicular line. The higher frequency 7.5 MHz probe results in better resolution of the pleural interface, compared to that obtained with the 3.5 MHz probe, although with less depth of penetration.
