CORONAL REFORMATS

These are coronal reformats of an abdomen CT. The image on the left shows the relationship of the heart to the diaphragm and liver, and the course of the small and large bowel and mesenteric blood vessels quite well. The image on the right shows the relationship of the kidneys to the adrenal glands, and demonstrates that the kidneys are located quite posteriorly in the abdomen; as posterior as the spine, since they are both seen in this same coronal section.
