Trace the peritoneum in an imaginary simplified sagittal section.
Trace the peritoneum in a simplified transverse section oriented to match CT and MRI axial sections.
Describe the layers of peritoneum: visceral and parietal peritoneum
Understand the subdivisions of the peritoneal cavity: greater and lesser sacs
Classify the relationship of the viscera to the peritoneum: intraperitoneal and extraperitoneal
Locate peritoneal formations: peritoneal ligaments; omenta (greater omentum, lesser omentum, gastrosplenic omentum); mesenteries (mesentery of the small intestine, transverse mesocolon)
Summarize the boundaries of the eipiploic foramen.
Sketch the contents of the free border of the lesser omentum.
Illustrate the ligaments of the spleen.
Outline the ligaments of the liver.
Clarify how the growth of the liver divides the ventral mesentry.
Relate the embryonic rotation of the stomach to the formation of the lesser sac.
