Palpable right upper quadrant mass
A palpable right upper quadrant mass could be due to a renal, hepatobiliary, bowel-related or other
cause. The sonographer should gently palpate to get an idea of the size and position of the mass and
whether or not it is tender. Specifically targeting the relevant area may yield useful and unexpected
results, for example a Reidel’s lobe, colonic carcinoma or impacted faeces, which will help to guide
the nature of further investigations.
