Ultrasound imaging of Control group (transversal and parasagittal views). The exam begins making transversal scanning, which shows homogeneous liver parenchyma, with medium level echogenicity and a regular hepatic surface. In the sequence, the parasagittal scanning shows right renal cortex more echogenic than liver. Author: Lessa AS. Length: 31 seconds. Size: 2.65 MB.
