Case 2

HISTORY

 Push bike accident.

Haemodynamically stable, RUQ tenderness.

ULTRASOUND FINDINGS

RUQ View

The first two clips clearly demonstrate a small amount of free fluid in the right upper quadrant.  

LUQ View

A trace of free fluid is evident at the tip of the spleen, but this is so subtle that without the RUQ fluid one would not be sure it really is free fluid. The volume may increase with time, and be more evident with serial scanning. In this case however CT is the investigation of choice.

Pelvic Views

Neither the longitudinal nor transverse views demonstrate free fluid. This is a male pelvis.
