CT: Axial abdomen  
 

This is an axial image of the mid-abdomen demonstrating the position of the various segments of the colon. The hepatic flexure contains stool, which often appears bubbly due to the air within it. The transverse and descending colon are both decompressed and therefore appear small in caliber. The small bowel is high density from the ingested oral contrast.

 
 

Identify the following:

1. liver

2. hepatic flexure of colon

3. transverse colon

4. descending colon

5. small bowel
