Classically, Murphy's sign is tested for during an abdominal examination in supine position; it is performed by asking the patient to breathe out and then gently placing the hand below the costal margin on the right side at the mid-clavicular line (the approximate location of the gallbladder). To confirm ac.Cholecystitis of ang origin can primarily be detected. With this one can differncite Ac Cholecystitis from Mirizzi's Syndrome and Cholangitis.
