Below the liver are the gall bladder and bile duct. Behind and to the left of the liver is the bottom of the gullet (oesophagus) and the top of the stomach. The stomach curves round to the right where it joins to the small bowel. Just behind the stomach and close to where it joins the small bowel, is the pancreas.
