As you scan past the vena cava, the gallbladder can be identified as a “black” structure in the fasted patient. With luck, the right kidney may also be seen. As the transducer moves farther to the right, the angle of the inferior hepatic border becomes increasingly blunted (Fig. 4b, c). Visualization often becomes poor at this point, especially in obese patients and when there is interposed gas in the right colic flexure. It can be helpful to have the patient breathe in deeply and inflate the abdomen.

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. 32). 33 shows the appearance of this phenomenon in actual images. Ah Al * Tr * A Fig. 32 Cross section of the aorta and celiac trunk at the origins of the hepatic and splenic arteries. As you see, this plane of section cuts the arteries at their origins and also more peripherally (fl). The downcurved segments of both arteries (››) lie in front of the image plane, and the peripheral segments passing to the porta hepatis and splenic hilum (*) are behind it.
