This frontal view from a 3D reconstruction of the abdominal aorta was obtained utilizing data from a CT angiogram. This image shows the bottom of the heart at the top of the image. The celiac axis and the superior mesenteric artery branches of the abdominal aorta are seen in addition to the renal arteries and both kidneys (blue). The irregularity along the walls of the vessels are a result of atherosclerotic plaque.
