Thank you Michael. I was about to use non-loculated, but wasn't happy with it.

agree  Drmanu49: Can non-focal be used Michael?

  -> no, non-focal is not used in English for ascites. In fact it is rarely used even as the antonym of focal in other cases, as in mallignancies. Focal changes versus generalized or widespread changes would be more used.
