Dull

 

On percussion the entire body is dull except the chest which is resonant and the abdomen which is tympanitic. On the chest there are areas of cardiac dullness which represent the precordium and area of hepatic dullness which represent the extent of the liver. The chest is stony dull when there is consolidation of the lungs as in pneumonia and in pleural effusion.
