Abdominal cavity

A large space inside the body, which contains most of the organs of the digestive system, the liver, spleen and kidneys. Its cranial boundary is the diaphragm, which separates it from the thoracic cavity. Dorsally it is enclosed by the spinal column and the lower ribs, ventrally by the abdominal muscles, and caudally by the pelvic cavity.
