Hemidiaphragm Left Sided Problem
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?
It is true. The normal location for the stomach is below the hemidiaphragm on the left side.
