The Office Visceral Slide Test
The office visceral slide test is an outpatient ultrasound test used to preoperatively predict intra-abdominal adhesions. This short video clip will explain the equipment needed, how to perform, and how to interpret the visceral slide test. An example of a normal test and an abnormal ultrasound visceral slide test are illustrated, including a laparoscopic view of the patient with an abnormal test. Video courtesy of Erica C.
