Small intestine examination

Small intestine is best examined around the umbilicus and the hypogastrium. It contains loops of bowel called the jejunum and ileum (while duodenum is epigastrium) which lie on the mesentery that divides the infracolic compartment into right and left. They are first inspected, then palpated before percussion and finally auscultation.
