Abdomen with liver. Coloured Computed Tomography (CT) scan of the abdomen of a 66 year old woman showing a healthy liver, seen in axial view. At lower centre is a vertebra of the spine (yellow); rib bones of the lower ribcage are visible around the abdomen (yellow ovals). The liver occupies much of the internal region, at upper centre right and left (orange). To the right of the vertebra is the aortic artery (circular, orange). The liver is the largest organ in the body, which regulates the levels of most main chemicals in the blood. A CT scan is made by X-ray beams to produce "slice" images through the body.
