Respiratory distress (RD) is the most common neonatal illness.
Lung ultrasound (LUS) is a technique previously tested in neonatal studies on RD, but literature regarding its routine clinical applicability is still lacking.
To assess the concordance between LUS performed by neonatologists with different training levels and chest X-ray (CXR) for the diagnosis of RD in newborns during the first 24 h of life.
We enrolled newborns with RD during the first 24 h of life.
Patients underwent LUS and CXR. LUS and CXR diagnosis were compared to evaluate concordance.
