The suprarenal impression is a small triangular depressed area on the liver. It is located close to the right of the fossa between the uncovered area and the caudate lobe and immediately above the renal impression. The greater part of the suprarenal impression is devoid of peritoneum and it lodges the right suprarenal gland.
