The fluid resolved 24 hours later (serial exam) as its kidney failure resolved. Note that such a small rim of fluid is not safely amenable to sampling by aspiration. (B) The image shows a large peritoneal effusion that is easily discriminated from retroperitoneal fluid by zooming away (increasing depth) as well as placing the kidney of interest on the non-gravity dependent side (left kidney imaged in right lateral recumbency; right kidney imaged in left lateral recumbency) because confounding structures fall away.
Lateral recumbency is advantageous in that the often air-filled (US does not transmit through air) small and large intestine fall away from the kidney at the non-gravity dependent site (SR in right lateral; HR in left lateral), facilitating ultrasound imaging. 8. False positives at the SR view typically involve the small intestine (ventral to SR) and the great vessels (dorsal to SR, aorta and caudal vena cava). Typically they appear as anechoic stripes (linear), which is atypical of free fluid (free fluid is classically revealed as anechoic [black] triangles).

Typically they appear as anechoic stripes (linear), which is atypical of free fluid (free fluid is classically revealed as anechoic [black] triangles). (A) Shown here is a linear stripe in the immediate far field to the kidney which is not free fluid but rather a loop of small intestine (SI). (B) By turning (the probe) left (counterclockwise) the SI is imaged in standard transverse orientation and appears as a classic “hamburger” (see Chapter 7).
