Diaphragm can tell us important information

Right subcostal view is a good way to observe GB, CBD, right liver and diaphragm.

Sometimes diaphragm on this approach can tell us important information.

Case 1: Normal diaphragm with hyperechoic and smooth line

Case 2: Pulmonary fibrosis patient with diffuse interstitial pattern. Multiple B lines visible abut diaphragm

Case 3: Right lower lung pneumonia. Consolidation/ hepatization & Air bronchogram are visible on the other side of diaphragm
