Caption: Healthy human stomach. Coloured X-ray of the stomach (yellow, at centre). Bones of the spinal column can be seen running from top to bottom. The stomach is a curved, sac-like organ that receives food from the oesophagus (top right) and plays a role in digestion. Food then passes into the intestine. This image was produced by swallowing a barium meal, a substance opaque to X- rays and which shows up the structure of the digestive tract. Barium X-rays are used to diagnose the cause of swallowing difficulty, check for inflammation of the oesophagus or stomach, detect stomach ulcers and bleeding, and reveal disorders in other parts of the bowel.
