18 Rotational transducer movement. The probe is rotated clockwise or counterclockwise on a fixed point. This allows examination of a structure or mass in two planes lizing the liver. This usually is sufficient for a screening examination. If resection or other intervention is planned, scanning before mobilization avoids artifacts, such as air, that may obscure the field of vision. A complete scan is repeated after mobilizing the liver. 5 Stepwise approach to liver scanning: intraoperative Fig. 19 Rocking/tilting transducer movement.
F) The distal-most portion of the common bile duct is seen from a left oblique upper abdominal position (Adapted from ) midline position. The pancreas is identified by first finding the vertebral body, aorta, vena cava, and the splenic vein junction with the superior mesenteric vein. The pancreas can be inferred by its relationship to these structures. 13 shows the prototypical image used to identify the pancreas. Once the neck and body are seen, the remaining portions of the gland are examined in the transverse plane and then the longitudinal plane.
This is the prototypical image seen at the superior border of the liver. The middle (MHV) and left (LHV) hepatic veins usually join to form a common trunk prior to joining the inferior vena cava (IVC). This has the appearance of “rabbit ears” and is a standard image that is helpful for orienting oneself during liver ultrasound. The right hepatic vein (RHV) is usually seen joining the vena cava in the same image Begin contact scanning on the anterior liver surface and start the scan by identifying the intrahepatic vasculature.
