Figure 4: The long axis of the heart. (a) The probe position for making the long axis of the heart. The probe can be tilted in the left or right direction to visualize structures (marked by arrow). (b) The LAX. The position of the marker of the probe is directed toward the right shoulder (marked by circle). Right (Rt) and left (Lt) shoulders' direction is shown by the broad arrows. (c) Color flow interrogation of the LA demonstrating laminar flow in pulmonary veins (marked by arrow). LAX: Long-axis view, LA: Left atrium
