Background: Abdominal injuries are among the most common causes of death in trauma patients, one-third of who develop abdominal trauma. Aim: Focused assessment with sonography is a part of the initial examination for emergency care of patients with abdominal blunt trauma. Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted on 180 patients with abdominal trauma admitted to Poursina Hospital, Rasht between 2016 and 2017. On admission, they were examined with FAST and divided into positive and negative. The patients underwent laparotomy/CT after physical examinations, and their results were mentioned as negative/positive. Results: Sensitivity, specificity, positive and negative predictive values of FAST compared with CTscan in all samples were 60%, 52.4%, 23.3% and 84.4%, respectively. Seventy-eight of 90 patients with positive FAST underwent laparotomy and 18 ones with negative FAST underwent laparotomy. Low blood pressure, GCS, and the hospital arrival time had significant relationship with the likelihood of false-positives of FAST tests compared to CT scans, whereas the significant relationship existed only in false-negative cases in age. There was a relationship between false-positive cases of Fast test compared with laparotomy in blood pressure. This relationship was significant in the case of falsenegative cases in age (P
