Finding Fluid

Morison's Pouch


sensor position


So this image is showing Morison’s pouch or the hepatorenal space - this is a key part of the fast examination, it’s the most sensitive area for fluid in the peritoneum. It can come from trauma but also from medical causes like ascites or ruptured ectopic or cyst. We’re using a curvilinear probe placed in the right flank or coronal view with the indicator towards the head.
