At the upper border of L1, the celiac trunk emerges perpendicular to the aorta, just beneath the arcuate ligament of the crura (see image abdG3004). The pancreas is draped across the origin of the celiac and the tail of the pancreas abuts the hilum of the spleen (see image panG3001). The upper pole of the left kidney and adjacent adrenal gland are seen. The top of the right adrenal gland is seen immediately posterior to the inferior vena cava where the adrenal vein drains directly into its posterior wall.

At the bottom of L1, the superior mesenteric artery arises from the aorta. Immediately anterior to it, the celiac is dipping down to divide into splenic and hepatic branches. Just anterior to the celiac, the splenic vein is seen as a light streak along the posterior border of the pancreas. The splenic vein drains into the portal vein posterior to the neck of the pancreas (see portal vein anatomy). The lower pole of the spleen abuts the middle of the left kidney.

At the level of L2, the superior mesenteric artery and vein are distinctly seen in the root of the small bowel mesentery. The third portion of the duodenum passes between them and the great vessels (see panG3001). The left renal vein crosses the aorta to drain into the inferior vena cava. Note the short right renal vein. Branches of the renal arteries, which arose anterolaterally just below the level of the superior mesenteric, are seen entering the renal hila.
