Background: Pathology of the anterior abdominal wall includes conditions requiring timely and appropriate surgical treatment. Clinical examination is usually able to suggest the diagnosis but in many cases, clinically significant questions remain and need to be addressed with imaging. Abdominal wall lesions may[...]

Findings and procedure details: We performed abdominal wall US using a high resolution ultrasound system with high frequency (5-13 MHz) linear array transducer. Conditions presented include:   A) Fluid collections including traumatic haematomas and abscesses.   B) Hernias including inguinal, umbilical and linea alba ty[...]

Conclusion: A wide spectrum of abnormalities affecting the anterior abdominal wall have been presented in this exhibit. All these condition require different treatment options, some of them demanding surgery. US is valuable in accurately characterizing abdominal wall lesions in terms of location, size, echotext[...]
