Beam path artifacts : Mirror image Mirror artifacts Commonly arise at strong reflectors, which act as “mirrors” for the ultrasound beam (smooth gas margins/smooth bone surfaces) the interface needs to be smooth so that the reflected beam is not significantly distorted Sometimes also seen adjacent to soft tissue specular reflectors surrounding by fluid Diagram showing Read more about Beam path artifacts: Mirror image[…]
