Didn't get to see it: "Excluded" means it wasn't in the pictures. Somehow, the tech or someone made a mistake and didn't get enough pictures. The abdomen starts at the diaphragm (which covers the top, or dome, of the liver on the right side). A CT of the abdomen should go from the diaphragm through the pelvis. However, in your case they started lower down - missing the top (or dome) of the liver. ...Read more

Can you feel your liver?

Can you feel your liver?

Hopefully not: Most individuals cannot feel their liver. It can be difficult for physicians to feel the liver unless it is enlarged. Normally on exam we may feel the distal edge, however, it is sometimes easier to percuss the size. In thin patients it can be easier. If someone has liver disease the liver edge can be found as low as the iliac crest or hip. Hope this helps, good luck. ...Read more
