Caption

Pancreatitis. Coloured computed tomography (CT) scan of an axial section through a patient's abdomen showing a false aneurysm (red) due to chronic pancreatitis. The front of the body is at top. A false aneurysm is a collection of blood in a cavity outside a blood vessel, in this case the splenic artery, which provides the spleen, stomach and pancreas with blood. Pancreatitis occurs when the pancreatic tissue is being digested by its own enzymes. Symptoms include extreme abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. It is most commonly caused by alcohol abuse or biliary tract disease. The liver (purple) and kidneys (brown) are also seen.
