At the middle of T12, the body of the gallbladder is seen as a radial lucency within the liver. The plane through the gallbladder bed and the inferior vena cava divides the liver into right and left lobes (see hepatic anatomy, caudal view). The crura of the diaphragm are seen uniting anterior to the aorta as the arcuate ligament. The posteromedial border of the spleen is indented by the beginning of perinephric fat within Gerota's fascia. The hilum and gastric surface of the spleen faces anteromedial.
