Interesting AXR

This is an abdominal Xray of a lady who has long-standing diabetes/ IHD/ chronic kidney disease and presented with poor oral intake and vomiting. My HO showed me her Xray asking what is the "worm-like" thing seen at left upper quadrant.

What do you think it is?

pancreatic calcification?

Yee: Your answer is the closest..

anonymous & caryn: The shape looks like dentures?? But my HO's answer is even more creative - she asked whether it's Ascaris lumbricoides! ;)

pilocarpine: It's something calcified but more next to the pancreas..

The answer is...

Calcified splenic artery! ;)
