CT: Axial abdomen, level of celiac trunk  
 

This is an axial image of the upper abdomen from a CT angiogram; the scan was performed when the intravenous contrast was located within the arteries, before it reached the organs. Notice the pancreas and liver are dark gray, as they have not yet taken up the iv contrast. The spleen is brighter, and is just starting to accumulate iv contrast.

1. aorta
