Figure 16: (a) Depending on the probe orientation, the gallbladder can be depicted with “fundus right” or “fundus left.” 1: Anterior abdominal wall; 2: Left lobe liver; 3: Gallbladder; 4: Left portal vein; 5: Ligamentum teres. (b) The gallbladder is seen of the liver under-surface. The imaging is directed from the right-to-left, and back-to-front. Most of the liver parenchyma seen in this orientation is S4. A cross section of the umbilical portion of portal vein is seen, with fan-like extension of ligamentum teres extending away. The ligamentum teres extends from the umbilical portion of left portal vein to the inferior surface of the liver, and is the obliterated remnant of the umbilical vein, which carries blood from placenta to the fetus. S4 is located to the right of ligamentum teres and umbilical portion of left portal vein, and S3 to the left. The ligamentum teres divides S3 from S4. 1: Umbilical portion of portal vein; 2: Ligamentum teres; 3: Gallbladder
