Normal stomach. Coloured frontal X-ray of the abdomen of a female with a healthy stomach (upper right). It is seen in high contrast because a meal containing radio-opaque barium was given prior to this X-ray to highlight it. The stomach is a sac-like organ that digests the food, which is then passed onto the small intestine (lower left). The spine is also seen running down the centre.
