The findings of ultrasonic ovarian examination are compared with the findings at… (More)
Real-time ultrasound and ultrasound-guided paracentesis were used in the diagnosis of hemoperitoneum in three patients. In all three, who had decreasing hematocrits, the possibility of intraperitoneal bleeding was confirmed or excluded with the two techniques.
