Video 02-04: Mirror Artifact

From: Pocket Guide to POCUS: Point-of-Care Tips for Point-of-Care Ultrasound

This view of the right upper quadrant shows the liver, diaphragm, and right kidney. At several points during the respiratory cycle it appears that there is additional liver on the other side of the diaphragm (in the bottom left-hand corner of the video), and a second kidney on the other side of the liver capsule (near the bottom of the screen). Both of these are artifacts from the highly reflective curved mirrors.
