Since the bulge component tends to dominate the galaxy, lenticular galaxy samples are often indistinguishable from elliptical galaxy populations in terms of their overall surface brightness profiles.
The bulge component is similar to elliptical galaxies in that it is pressure supported by a central velocity dispersion.
