What we see

Since it is ultrasound awareness month I decided to make this post just a fun fact. Have you ever been in the middle of an ultrasound exam and have the patient and/or their family member consistently call out what the images on your screen were? I know most of you have. Today I am going to tell you exactly what that non-sonographers are thinking. Let me introduce you to what a normal human eye processes vs the awesome sonographer’s eye.

What others see…….bunny               What we see…hepatic veins draining into the IVC


What they see…..hamburger             What we see…..sagittal pancreas with the elongation of the SMV


Happy Ultrasound Awareness Month!
