Figure 91A: Longitudinal ultrasound image of the pylorus demonstrates a thickened pyloric muscle measuring 4.1 mm (between cursors). Figure 91B: Longitudinal ultrasound image of the pylorus shows a markedly thickened, hypoechoic gastric pyloric muscle with an elongated pyloric canal length measuring 17 mm (between cursors). Figure 91C: Transverse US image of the pyloric channel shows the target sign of pyloric stenosis (arrow) because of circumferential hypertrophied hypoechoic muscle surrounding echogenic mucosa.
