Applicable Clinical Terms Definitions

Abdomen: That portion of the body that lies between the THORAX and the PELVIS.

Brain: The part of CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM that is contained within the skull (CRANIUM). Arising from the NEURAL TUBE, the embryonic brain is comprised of three major parts including PROSENCEPHALON (the forebrain); MESENCEPHALON (the midbrain); and RHOMBENCEPHALON (the hindbrain). The developed brain consists of CEREBRUM; CEREBELLUM; and other structures in the BRAIN STEM.

Heart: The hollow, muscular organ that maintains the circulation of the blood.

Kidney: Body organ that filters blood for the secretion of URINE and that regulates ion concentrations.

Lung: Either of the pair of organs occupying the cavity of the thorax that effect the aeration of the blood.

Pericardium: A conical fibro-serous sac surrounding the HEART and the roots of the great vessels (AORTA; VENAE CAVAE; PULMONARY ARTERY). Pericardium consists of two sacs: the outer fibrous pericardium and the inner serous pericardium. The latter consists of an outer parietal layer facing the fibrous pericardium, and an inner visceral layer (epicardium) resting next to the heart, and a pericardial cavity between these two layers.
