  33. 33. Abdominal trauma On evaluation, urgent life-threatening injuries, such as a large hemoperitoneum, a large or tension pneumothorax, or active arterial extravasation, should be sought out first. This should be followed by a thorough interrogation for injury of the abdomen and pelvis: liver and right paracolic gutter; spleen and left paracolic gutter; upper abdominal organs, arterial tree; retroperitoneum; small bowel, colon, and mesentery.
  34. 34. liver trauma 4-cm-thick subcapsular hematoma associated with parenchymal hematoma
  35. 35. Renal injury Subcapsular and perinephric haematoma.
  36. 36. Splenic trauma Splenic lacerations with perisplenic haematoma
  37. 37.  Clinical evaluation of the patient is the first step in the diagnosis. Choose the appropriate imaging modality.
