Sometimes the lesion is completely hidden behind the equator of the globe but is visible with US using the globe as an acoustic window. In this circumstance, it is often helpful to simply bend the needle to the angle needed. This allows you place the needle along side the globe, rotate the needle, and then use the angle of the pre-bent needle to direct its advance into the portions of the lesion behind the globe.
