Abstract

Aim: Ultrasonography (USG) is an important tool used in the diagnosis of critical patients. The present study was carried out in order to detect intra-peritoneal free liquid in cases with high-energy trauma by using "extended-focused trauma (E-FAST) USG" and to determine the diagnostic power and benefits of this method.
