You may have heard of the FAST exam, but have you heard of the SLOW exam? The SLOW exam is featured in a 2018 article in Journal of Ultrasound in Medicine and is a systematic approach to finding small amounts of intraperiteoneal free fluid.  A 2014 article (PMID: 25763079) showed the sensitivity of the FAST exam increased from 36.6% to 70.7% when this exam was used! Check it out!
