  The duodenum is the first of the three parts of the small intestine that receives partially digested food from the stomach and begins with the absorption of nutrients. It is directly attached to the pylorus of the stomach. It has a C-shape, it is closely related to the head of the pancreas and consists of four sections: superior, descending, horizontal, and ascending supply: Superior (anterior, posterior) and inferior pancreaticoduodenal arteries. As a whole, the duodenum loop lies to the right on the abdominal wall. Its peritoneal layers stick and fuse to the peritoneal layer that lines the abdominal cavity parietally. The duodenum thus becomes "secondarily retroperitoneal".The transition between the foregut and midgut are found on the vertex of the duodenal loop, there where the liver and pancreas anlagen arise.

The duodenum. The duodenum is the first segment of the small intestine and is also the shortest (about 25 centimeters, or roughly 10 inches). It starts at the pylorus and ends at the duodenojejunal junction. The length of the duodenum in man is approximately 25–30 cm (the width of about 12 fingers—hence the name); its volume is – ml. The wall of the duodenum consists of three layers: the inner layer of mucous membrane, the middle layer of muscular membrane, and the external layer of serous membrane.

Radiology of the Stomach and Duodenum aims to “provide useful and informative reading for any radiologist with an interest in the stomach and duodenum.” It is part of the extensive Medical Radiology series.

The duodenum also regulates The Duodenum book that are part of the digestive process and uses fluids from the liver, gallbladder, and pancreas.

The duodenum is the shortest segment of the intestine and is about 23 to 28 cm (9 to 11 inches) long. It is roughly horseshoe-shaped, with the open end up and to the left, and it lies behind the anatomic and functional grounds, the duodenum.

It measures about 12 inches long, and is connected not only to the stomach and the jejunum – the second part of the small intestine – but to the gallbladder, liver, and pancreas as well, through an orifice known as the ampulla of Vater, which sits to the center of the duodenum.

A number of imaging techniques, many of them complementary, are used in the investigation and treatment of disorders of the stomach and duodenum. Optimal patient treatment requires a thorough knowledge of the application of these techniques, as well as a sound understanding of pathology of the stomach and its presenting symptomatology.

It is subject to various disorders, the most common of which are peptic ulcers. The duodenum is an organ located just below the stomach and its functions include the continuation of the digestion process and the regulation of gastric emptying.
