A new method to approach exact hemoperitoneum volume in a splenic trauma model using ultrasonography

In the trauma setting, the Focused Assessment for the Sonographic examination of the Trauma patient (FAST) accurately detects hemoperitoneum. Currently, only an approximate evaluation of the volume of free intraperitoneal fluid (FIPF) can be done by imaging modalities such as ultrasound (US).
