Case contributed by Dr Bálint Botz

Presentation

Routine quality assessment.

Ultrasound

Visual observation of the in-air reverberation pattern reveals a subtle peripheral nonuniformity manifesting as focal inhomogeneity of the reverberation lines. 

Case Discussion

Delamination defects are more subtle than complete dropouts, and are rarely noticeable without close inspection of the reverberation pattern.
