Fig. 27-3. The stomach. A, After a barium meal, upright position. Some barium has transversed the bile and cystic ducts and is seen in the lower part of the gallbladder. Both the stomach and the gallbladder show a fluid level. The lower part of the stomach extends considerably below the supracristal plane here, and the fundus of the gallbladder is at the level of L.V.4. In B, note the horizontal position of the "steerhorn" stomach. In C, the stomach is coated with barium and shows mucosal folds. (A, Courtesy of A. J. Chilko, M.D., New York, New York.)
