29b explains this phenomenon. Fig. 29 Demonstrating the celiac trunk and splenic artery in longitudinal section Ah Al Tr b Explanation of the phenomenon in a. The celiac trunk initially runs to the right and gives rise to the splenic artery, which courses to the left. This explains how a longitudinal scan can cut both vessels simultaneously. Tr Ah Al A a Longitudinal scan through the aorta (A), celiac trunk (›), splenic artery (fl), and superior mesenteric artery (flfl). info 29 3 Blood Vessels: Aorta and Branches, Vena Cava and Tributaries Place the transducer longitudinally over the aorta, obtaining a sectional view of the celiac trunk (Fig.

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. A = aorta, Tr = celiac trunk, Ah = hepatic artery, Al = splenic artery Fig.

This inferior border is easy to demonstrate with ultrasound. Place the transducer longitudinally on the upper abdomen, slightly to the right of the midline. Press the caudal end of the transducer a bit more deeply into the abdominal wall than the cranial end, so that the scan is directed slightly upward. This should bring the sharp inferior hepatic border into view (Fig. 4a). Now slide the transducer to the left, keeping it in a longitudinal plane while following the line of the costal arch as closely as possible.
