Intestinal gas and swollen abdomen. Coloured coronal computed tomography (CT) scan of the torso of a 57-year-old woman with a painful and swollen abdomen in a case of acute abdominal syndrome. The scan shows that excessive intestinal gas has pushed the diaphragm and lungs upwards, possibly due to an intestinal blockage.
