The main ultrasound criterion for diagnosing pulmonary infarction is the presence of triangular/wedge-shaped or rounded, hypoechogenic, homogeneous, pleura-based lesions. When used in point-of-care, ultrasonography of several organs can facilitate the diagnosis of pulmonary embolism in a patient presenting with chest pain. We describe a case of chest pain which we thought was due to angina, but point-of-care ultrasonography directed us to a diagnosis of pulmonary embolism.
