31b–d). Observe the section of the hepatic artery, which is shown schematically in Fig. 31e. Fig. 31 Demonstrating the hepatic artery in longitudinal section Demonstrating the hepatic artery and splenic artery in transverse section The down-curved portions of the hepatic artery and splenic artery may occasionally cause peculiar imaging phenomena that are confusing initially. Refer back to Fig. 27. Both vessels show a marked downward curve as they leave the celiac trunk. Because of this, each artery may be cut twice in the same transverse plane—once at the origin and once in the periphery (Fig.

5 Reverberations. Two different forms are shown Beam-width artifact The beam-width artifact (section-thickness artifact) appears as a collection of fine, grainy echoes distributed along the inside of cystic structures whose wall is struck obliquely by the ultrasound beam (Fig. 6). The main beam emitted by the transducer has a definite width. When the beam encounters an oblique interface, the beam width overlaps both the echo-free interior of the cyst and its highly reflective wall. Because the echogenicities of these different structures are averaged together electronically to form an image, smudgy echoes appear to line the cyst wall (pseudosludge).
