The Aortic Arch Long-Axis View
This view is obtained by cutting the fetal body in a parasagittal plane with transducer angulation from the right of the sternum to the left shoulder. As to the heart chambers, the diagram shows how this view includes inferiorly an oblique section of the two atria together with the long-axis view of the aortic arch (Fig. 14.1).
