Lung ultrasound (LUS) imaging is becoming popular in the intensive care units (ICU) for assessing lung abnormalities such as the appearance of B-line artefacts as a result of severe dengue. These artefacts appear in the LUS images and disappear quickly, making their manual detection very challenging. They also extend radially following the propagation of the sound waves. As a result, we hypothesize that a polar representation may be more adequate for automatic image analysis of these images. This paper presents an attention-based Convolutional+LSTM model to automatically detect B-lines in LUS videos, comparing performance when image data is taken in Cartesian and polar representations. Results indicate that the proposed framework with polar representation achieves competitive performance compared to the Cartesian representation for B-line classification and that attention mechanism can provide better localization.
