Figure 1: Illustration of the directions of ultrasound transducer probe when positioned over the apex of the clavicle-sternocleidomastoid triangle. Greater anterolateral and total overlap of the internal jugular vein relative to the carotid artery is shown when the ultrasound transducer is directed perpendicular to the neck skin (B) compared to when the ultrasound is directed perpendicular to the floor (A). The figure is reproduced with permission from MEJA. Sibai et al. M.E.J. ANESTH 19 (6) 2008: 1305-1320
