German term or phrase: imponieren
Sono of epigastrium. Under heading Summary: "idem auch, dass der linke LL insgesamt sehr inhomogen imponiert"

appears, comes across as
Explanation:
would be my reading of it. If you use affect or influence, what would it be that is being affected or influenced - both of these are transitive verbs, and I'm not sure what their direct object is - but then maybe I'm just missing something!
