Hemidiaphragm Left Sided Problem

08/03/2010

Question:

I have been having some medical problems for the past several months. After having a chest CT/contrast it is noted that I have "my stomach is below the hemidiaphragm on the left side" I cannot get an answer as to what this means. The radiologist says, "nothing to worry about" is this true?

Answer:

It is true. The normal location for the stomach is below the hemidiaphragm on the left side.
