sorry, I have given an incomplete quote

Abnormal areas within the lung that are more dense than healthy lung tissue will stand out as paler than the surrounding tissue.

They are sometimes referred to as 'shadows'.

The shape and appearance of the shadow gives the experienced radiologist a clue about the likely diagnosis.

Reference: shred sign

Reference information:
"The shred sign, also known as the fractal sign, is a static sonographic sign of lung consolidation. Consolidated lung tissue appears as a subpleural hypoechoic region that has an irregular (shredded) deep border (fractal line) abutting normally aerated lung, which has echogenic artifacts."
