The following cross-sectional atlas of a normal male abdomen demonstrates anatomical relationships of the abdominal organs in the context of the CT scan. The sections span the area between the dome of the right hemidiaphragm at T9 to L5 below the aortic bifurcation.
The air-filled colon outlines a pendent transverse colon between prominent hepatic and splenic flexures. Note the proximity of the heart to the cardia of the stomach and the lesser curve of the stomach crossing the T12-L1 disc.
