shape of the pancreas


a: Shape of the pancreas ~
b: a tadpole


"The pancreas is in the upper abdomen and lies behind the stomach and intestines (guts). The shape of the pancreas is like a tadpole, and so the pancreas has a head, a body and a tail. The head section is nearest to the duodenum (the part of the gut just after the stomach)."
