Abdominal fat is an important part of anatomy when interpreting abdominal scans but is frequently ignored.  Abdominal fat is key to the peritoneum, peritoneal folds, omentum, mesentery and retroperitoneum.  Knowledge of the embryology facilitates understanding the anatomy of the peritoneum and retroperitoneum thereby improving diagnostic accuracy and localisation of pathology.

Learning objectives:

  1. Review relevant embryology and peritoneal anatomy on schematic drawings with cross sectional imaging correlation.
  2. Highlight the pathological appearances in benign and malignant disease.
  3. Utilise the spread of pathology to illustrate anatomical boundaries and spaces.
