On the publication of “Imaging Artifacts in Echocardiography,” in the March issue of Anesthesia and Analgesia.
Artifacts are frequently encountered during echocardiographic examinations. An understanding of the physics and underlying assumptions of ultrasound processing involved with image generation is important for accurate interpretation of 2D grayscale, spectral Doppler, color flow Doppler, and 3D artifacts and their clinical implications.
