Abstract: 

Regarding the prevalence of trauma and its known complications, a descriptive research was conducted to study the sonographic findings and evaluate the diagnostic value of sonography in 300 patients with abdominal blunt trauma in 1998. All the patients were set for sonography to search for free fluid and injuries of abdominal organic parts. Among them, 24 cases were operated by laparatomy wit thregard to the sonogranhic findings. Then the obtained results were compared with the sonographic findings. The rest of patients (267 cases) had no surgical indication and were set under consideration. According to the sonographic signs of Detents, 276 cases were true negative, 23 cases were true positive and one case was false positive. The sensitivity, specificity and accuracy of this method were 100%, 99% and 99.6%, respectively. Therefore, sonography can be used as an initial selective diagnostic approach to detect free fluid in the abdomen and pelvic cavity and is useful in studying the adbominal organic injuries as a screening method for later diagnostic measures.
