Anatomy Of Gi Tract Image
The organs that make up the GI tract are the mouth, throat, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, rectum, and anus. The GI tract is one part of the digestive system. 2
The gastrointestinal tract is an organ system that enables us to ingest food via the mouth, digest it by breaking it down, absorb it, and then expel the remaining waste as faeces via the anus. The gastrointestinal tract is made up of a series of hollow organs joined together in a long tube with many folds from the mouth to the anus.
Looking at pictures of your GI tract can help you to pinpoint where symptoms such as abdominal pain may be coming from. This understanding can also help you to better describe your symptoms to your healthcare provider.
