Isn't "a" the pyloric antrum. I think this is the section which is usually shown when you are given the history of acute gastritis. I may be wrong.
I agree with the rest
b) pancreas
c) aorta
d) & e) left and right renal arteries
f) inferior vena cava
g) liver

I agree The ANSWER

Thanks everyone for your answers. It looks like everyone knows there stuff!

Here are the answers -

a) STOMACH
b) PANCREAS
c) AORTA
d) LEFT Renal Artery
e)RIGHT Renal Artery
f) IVC
g) Liver

If you get confused with the orientation (left and right) while looking at a CT just think you are standing at the end of the bed while the patient is laying down. The right side of the image is the Left of the patient and vice versa.
