Figure 6: The 4-chamber view. (a) The probe placement for the view. The marker on the probe is toward the right. The probe is kept close to the apex of the heart and oriented posteriorly for inflow. The broad marker shows the inclination on the probe to demonstrate the image. (b) The 4-chamber view in true apical 4-chamber view. LV: Left ventricle, RV: Right ventricle, LA: Left atrium, RA: Right atrium. (c) Demonstrating posterior tilt to the plane of the tricuspid valve to show the opening of the coronary sinus (marked by arrow)
