Dont u think there is a similar image in ascending aortic posterior
wall? In this case the vessel orientation is different.

Frequently, the descending aorta can be seen just behind the left atrium in the parasternal long axis view on TTE. In this case, a subtle finding is a serious one that must be detected. The linear echodensity across the aorta is an acute dissection of the aorta.
