_ _ consists of multiple peritoneal ligaments and folds that connect the viscera to each other and the abdominal walls

Peritoneal cavity

Attachments of the peritoneum to the abdominal walls and organs help determine the way abnormal collections if _ within the peritoneal cavity can collect or move

Fluid

The _ _ can adhere to the diseased organs

Greater omentum

Mass is confirmed to be in the _ _ when anterior renal displacement or anterior displacement if the dilated ureters can be documented

Retroperitoneal cavity

Single large and irregular _ space surrounds the superior and lateral aspects if the left lobe of the liver

Perihepatic

The _ divides the retrovesicle space into an anterior vesicouterine recess and a posterior rectouterine sac (pouch of douglas)

Uterus

Fluid in the extraperitoneal prevesical space has a "_" configuration, displacing the bladder posteriorly and compressing it from the sides along it's entire length

Dumbbell

The _ muscles are seen as a biconvex muscle group delineated by the linea alba and linea semilunaris

Rectus

_ line is seen as a discrete linear echogenicity in the deepest layer if the abdominal wall

1

Hepatorenal recess

_ pathways through which bacteria can enter the liver and cause abscess formation

5

_ is a cavity formed by necrosis within a solid tissue or a circumscribed collection of purulent material

Abscess

Abscess formation and pockets in the abdomen and pelvis

_ _ abscess: scattered air reflectors may be the sonographers clue in a gas- or air- filled abscess collection; they have varying echo patterns

Gas containing

Gas containing abscess

_ and the resultant abscess formation may be generalized or localized process

Peritonitis

_ foramen usually seals off the lesser sac from inflammatory processes extrinsic to it

Epiploic

Subphrenic abscess

_ collections of fluid with in the liver can mimic loculated subphrenic fluid

Subcapsular

_ abscess are extrahepatic loculated collections of bile

_ cyst is an incomplete regression of a urachus during development

Urachal

_ encapsulated collections of urine

Urinoma

Urinoma

_ _ develops from cellular implantation across the peritoneal cavity

Peritoneal metastases

_ exhibits a uniformly thick, hypoechoic, band shaped structure that follows the convexity of the anterior and lateral abdominal wall, creating the omental band

Lymphoma

Peritoneal and omental _ most often occur in middle aged men as the result of exposure to asbestos

Mesotheliomas

_ are collections of fluid that occurs after surgery in the pelvis, retroperitoneum, or recess cavities

Lymphoceles

_ _ _: collections of blood between the bladder and lower uterine segment, resulting from a lower uterine transverse cesarean section and bleeding from the uterine vessels

Bladder flap hematoma

_ _ are found in the prevesicular space and caused by the disruption of the inferior epigastic vessels or their branches during a C section

Subfascial hematoma

_ tumor: is a benign fibrous neoplasm of apeneurotic structures and occurs most commonly in relation to the rectus abdominis and it's sheath

Desmoid

Neoplasm or peritoneal thickening

_ _ is a protrusion of a peritoneal lined sac through a defect in the weakened abdominal wall and is most common areas of weakness are the umbilical area and the femoral and inguinal ring
