Figure 1. Ultrasound image of the internal jugular vein (IJV) and carotid artery (C). Figure A demonstrates the appeance of the vessels without compression and Figure B with external compression provided by the transducer. The IJ vein can be differentiated from the carotid artery by its larger diameter, its more superficial location and its compressibility with external compression.
