Focused view of aortic root and ascending aorta. A protruding atheroma of posterior sino-tubular junction can be seen in systole (white arrow). The atheroma does not cause flow disturbances (color aliasing) near the posterior aortic wall. Detection of the atheroma must rely on focused imaging of the aortic walls and close inspection of the 2D image
主动脉根部和升主动脉的聚焦视图。 后窦管交界处收缩期可见突出的动脉粥瘤(白色箭头)。 该动脉粥瘤不引起主动脉后壁附近的血流干扰(彩色混淆现象)。 动脉粥瘤的侦测必须依赖于主动脉壁的聚焦视图和对二维图像的仔细检查。
