Anteroposterior View of the Abdomen With Patient Standing How do we know the patient is standing? Look for the location of the gas bubble in the stomach
L1 Air bubble in fundus of stomach Liver outline T12 Vertebrae
Gas! air in stomach air in transverse colon
Vertebral column Esophagus Stomach Diaphragm Phrenic Ampulla (only seen radiologically) A lateral view of the upper GI tract following a barium swallow This image demonstrates normal anatomy of the esophagus
greater curvature lesser curvature fundus pylorus pyloric antrum duodenal cap duodenum rugae peristalsis in action!
gallbladder duodenum gas bubble in stomach fundus jejunum rugae greater curvature body
The bowel is distended with air, and a small volume of barium is used to coat the mucosa How has the patient been positioned?
celiac trunk catheter splenic artery left gastro- omental artery left gastric a. gastroduodenal a. hepatic a. right gastric a.
superior mesenteric a. catheter middle colic a. right colic a. ileocolic a. arteries to jejunum arteries to ileum
catheter inferior mesenteric a. left colic a. superior rectal a. sigmoid arteries renal pelvis lead shield
gallbladder Water-soluble contrast material is injected directly into the liver via a fine needle introduced through the skin
contrast in fundus of gallbladder
Water-soluble contrast was injected into the biliary system via a tube left in place following removal of the gallbladder (cholecystectomy) common bile duct duodenum pancreatic duct common hepatic duct right hepatic duct left hepatic duct
How many lumbar vertebrae are there? What are the main regional characteristics of these vertebrae? No ribs Large bodies Stout transverse processes
12th rib 12th thoracic vertebra spine of L5 transverse process of L2 pedicles of L3 superior articular process of L2 body of L1 inferior articular process of L4 lumbosacral joint
sacrum pedicle of L2 body of L2 superior articular process of L5 inferior articular process of L4
