Caption

Pancreatic cancer. Axial computed tomography (CT) scan through a 69-year-old man's abdomen. The front of the body is at top. A cancer (red) is seen in the pancreatic tail (yellow). Other abdominal organs seen are: the liver (orange), air pockets (black) in the intestines (upper centre), the spleen (green, far right), the left kidney (blue, lower right) and one of the spinal vertebrae (white, lower centre). The pancreas secretes digestive enzymes. Pancreatic cancer is relatively common, but hard to diagnose. Symptoms include jaundice and weight loss. By the time it is detected, it is often inoperable.
