This session describes factors that can lead to misdiagnosis, including ultrasound artifacts and normal cardiac anatomical structures that may be misdiagnosed as pathological processes. It also considers the limitations of basic echo in those who are inexperienced in its use.


By the end of this session you will be able to:
• List the normal cardiac structures that can be wrongly labelled as pathological lesions
• Describe the different types of artifact that can occur during ultrasound imaging
• Outline the limitations of a basic transthoracic study and identify when a comprehensive transthoracic echo examination is required
