The visceral surface of the spleen.

The spleen is situated in front of ribs 9, 10, 11, the diaphragm, and the costodiaphragmatic recess in the left hypochondrium region. The hilum is on its medial aspect, and it has a slightly notched anterior/superior border. The spleen is in contact with the stomach, colon, tail of the pancreas, and the kidney.
