Caption: Thrombosis of a groin artery. Coloured magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of a thrombosis of the left iliac artery (right) in the groin. The kidneys are at upper right and left in this frontal view. A thrombosis is the disruption of the body's blood supply by the formation of an abnormal blood clot (thrombus) in a blood vessel. This frontal view of the abdominal and groin arteries (red) shows the abdominal aorta (upper centre, the main body artery) dividing to form the two iliac arteries that supply the legs. Blood is flowing through the iliac artery at left, but a thrombus has blocked the other iliac artery (right). Here, the thrombus was caused by a build- up of fatty deposits (atheroma) on the blood vessel walls.
