Different authors have defined the number and nomenclature of these “standard views” and the corresponding transducer placements differently. 7. Transducer movements KEY POINT There are five basic patterns of transducer movement: Sliding on the flat Sliding on edge Angulation Rocking Rotation Once you have grasped the basics of transducer placement, you should become familiar with the basic patterns of transducer movement. Position the transducer for an upper abdominal transverse scan. 8. Perform each of these movements with the transducer, sticking closely to the patterns indicated for the time being.

5MHz are generally used for diagnostic ultrasound. High frequencies provide less penetration depth with higher resolution, while low frequencies give deeper penetration with lower resolution. 5 MHz are commonly used for upper abdominal scanning. 5 MHz curved array. Adjusting the monitor You can adjust the monitor's brightness and contrast. Adjust the brightness level so that you can distinguish the background brightness of the monitor image from the structures surrounding the image. Then adjust the contrast to a level at which you can distinguish all shades of gray in the gray bars.

It occurs when the scan simultaneously cuts the origin of the celiac trunk and the splenic artery anterior to it (Fig. 29a). 29b explains this phenomenon. Fig. 29 Demonstrating the celiac trunk and splenic artery in longitudinal section Place the transducer longitudinally over the aorta, obtaining a sectional view of the celiac trunk (Fig. 30a,b). Mentally picture the splenic artery coursing behind the image plane. Now slide the transducer slowly to the left and follow the section of the splenic artery as it moves across the field of view (Fig.
