Did you have CT?
Anechoic collection means liquid or the inside of the intestine. The hypoechogenicity seems to be fat. Abscesses have a wide range of sonographic appearances. Typically, they appear as anechoic or hypoechoic spherical collections of echogenic fluid with poorly defined borders. Additionally, septae, sediment, or even gas may be present within the fluid collection. Compression with the transducer may induce movement or swirling of the contained pus. Color doppler ultrasound can tell it is a blood vessel or not. But CT scan can tell it is intestine or not. If it is not a blood vessel or the intestine, it should be aspirate with a needle to see if it is abscess or just liquid from the inflammation.
