RUQ anatomy: Anatomically, the right upper quadrant (RUQ) of the abdomen includes: liver, gallbladder, pancreatic head, bile ducts and ampulla, c-loop of the duodenum, stomach antrum and pylorus, the hepatic flexure of the colon. Don't forget the diaphragm & lower chest are pretty close by. The abdominal musculature, ribs, & skin can all contribute as well to localizing RUQ pain. Lots to consider here.
