Repeat this pass several times. Fig. 4 Upper abdominal longitudinal scans of the aorta and vena cava Now move the transducer down to the midabdomen. You will notice that the vessels are obscured by gas—usually in the transverse colon, which is cut transversely by the scan plane. As before, scan slowly across the entire aorta and vena cava several times (Fig. 5).

Notice that the hepatic artery (Ah) and splenic artery (Al) initially curve downward from their origin at the celiac trunk before passing toward the liver and spleen. Ags = left gastric artery. Fig. 28 Celiac trunk, hepatic artery, and splenic artery in cross section. Notice that the celiac trunk is directed to the right and is continuous with the hepatic artery. The splenic artery first runs horizontally and then turns posteriorly and to the left.

The intensity of the echo. This depends on the difference in hardness at the interface between the adjacent sound-conducting media. ” The A-mode principle is as follows: A short ultrasound pulse is emitted and propagates through the tissue. The reflected echoes are displayed on a graph as vertical deflections along a time axis. The location of the deflections depends on the echo transit time, and their amplitude (height) depends on the intensity of the echoes. ” In the B-mode, the returning echoes are displayed as shades of gray rather than deflections along a baseline.
