The top of the Doppler box is at the top of the image Tips to Overcome It is important to remember not to interpret images and “hot spots” below a bone with intact contour. Reverberation Doppler Artifact It is based on the same mechanism as its GS correspondent, with the distinction that in Doppler evaluation the two closely spaced interfaces conducting to repeated wave reflections are the vessel walls. As a consequence of reverberation, false vessels can appear on the screen. A superficial vessel can appear again deeper on the screen image either once (simple reverberation) or more times, with a showering of color behind it (complex reverberation) [8].

When a strong reflecting structure like a calcification is very small compared to the width of the main US beam, the posterior acoustic shadowing will be eliminated. This situation may occur in case of small calcifications inside a fluid collection. 11). Sometimes focus adjustment strictly in the area of interest will remove the artifact [5]. ), an artifact called lateral shadowing (or refraction shadowing) appears. After reflection of the beam, marginal waves get also refracted at the edges of the structure, therefore no sound beam is returning to the probe; as a consequence, a shadow near 2 Pitfalls in Musculoskeletal Ultrasound 29 Fig.
