31 Chapter 3: Cardiac ultrasound Massive pulmonary embolism in pulseless electrical activity (PEA) arrest: An apical four-chamber view of the heart obtained in a patient with pulseless electrical activity (PEA) arrest and massive pulmonary embolism. Note the right ventricular (RV) diameter approaches that of the left ventricle, and the RV free wall is rounded in shape. On real-time echocardiography, a severely dyskinetic RV was apparent, and RV function improved after intravenous administration of tissue plasminogen activator (tPA).

Chapter 3: Cardiac ultrasound Acute mitral regurgitation: An apical four-chamber view is obtained in a patient with decompensated heart failure from ruptured papillary muscle. Color Doppler placed across the mitral valve reveals severe mitral regurgitation with retrograde turbulent flow during systole. In variance mode, turbulent (non-laminar) flow demonstrates a mosaic pattern of turquoise and yellow pixels (arrow). Acute aortic regurgitation: A parasternal long-axis view is remarkable for turbulent flow (mosaic appearance) across the aortic valve (arrow) during diastole in a patient with severe aortic regurgitation.

54 Chapter 4: Ultrasound of the lung Large right loculated empyema: Above the diaphragm, a well-contained hypoechoic fluid collection has layering debris (arrow). Color Doppler of the encircling tissue can help differentiate empyema from intraparenchymal abscess (not shown). Left pleural effusion, coronal view: A large effusion (arrow) is seen above the diaphragm, with a consolidated lower lobe edge (arrowhead) floating in the fluid, moving with inspiration on real-time imaging. 55 Chapter 4: Ultrasound of the lung Left basilar pleural effusion, coronal view: A small hypoechoic fluid collection is seen above the diaphragm (arrow).
