Free Medical Terminology Practice Test: Abdominal Quadrants and Regions

People who work in healthcare may need to identify particular areas in the torso. In order to help pinpoint abdominal areas, one can imagine that the abdomen is divided into nine regions or sections, with three columns and three rows:
  1. Right Hypochondriac
  2. Epigastric
  3. Left Hypochondriac
  4. Right Lumbar
  5. Umbilical
  6. Left Lumbar
  7. Right Inguinal
  8. Hypogastric
  9. Left Inguinal

Another way to divide the abdominal area is through the use of four quadrants, which are typically identified by their corresponding abbreviation:
  1. Right Upper Quadrant (RUQ)
  2. Right Lower Quadrant (LLQ)
  3. Left Upper Quadrant (LUQ)
  4. Left Lower Quadrant (LLQ)

This practice test on the abdominal regions and quadrants will help readers to test their knowledge of what superficial organs and other points are typically located in the various areas. In order to utilize these slides, simply click on the first one to enlarge the image and click on the next thumbnail at the bottom of the screen to advance to the next question or answer.

I hope you find this information about abdominal quadrants and regions to be helpful and that you'll visit my site map for additional educational resources!
