Anatomical terminology

In anatomy, the hypogastrium (also called the hypogastric region or suprapubic region) is a region of the abdomen located below the umbilical region. The pubis bone constitutes its lower limit. The roots of the word hypogastrium mean "below the stomach"; the roots of suprapubic mean "above the pubic bone".
