Please accept colon for large intestine.
+19
Level 81
Nov 3, 2016
It's not the same thing. Colon is just a part of the large intestine. From Wikipedia: "Most sources define the large intestine as the combination of the cecum, colon, rectum, and anal canal.[2][3] Some other sources exclude the anal canal".
+4
Level 66
Dec 13, 2016
The colon is colloquially synonymous with the large intestine but technically refers to the ascending, transverse, descending, and sigmoid regions. The cecum, which attaches to the small intestine's terminal ileum, and the rectum are the entry and exit points of the large intestine but referring to the overall system as the colon is acceptable in common speech and should also be accepted as an answer.

Trachea? No. Esophagus? No. What's that weirdly shaped thing in between the lungs? Took me a good while. I couldn't make a better map anyway. And it's fun to have one!

Apr 28, 2020
I'm pretty sure it's a cross section (called a coronal plane but just imagine being split into a front half and a back half), so the classic heart shape is lost.

I interpreted it to be the aortic valve but I'm sure that's not right...

Level 67
Dec 13, 2016
The heart is behind the lungs, which is why it has such a strange shape. This certainly does give it the appearance of other organs, though.
+1
Level 67
Dec 20, 2018
It is true that the heart is behind the lungs for a big part. Though it definately is not nearly as high as the lungs (it should be almost half as high as it is here), plus your left lung is smaller (to make room for the heart), so a part of the heart is still seen there. Sorry to say but this picture looks nothing like it looks in reality. (I do like the idea of a map though!)

Large bowel and small bowel should be accepted instead of intestine. The word bowel is used much more frequently amongst the medical/nursing fraternity.

Normally, I would agree; but with a diagram that makes the heart the shape of a Taquito, I'm surprised only 14% missed it.

I got 100% (I am a physician, I better have), but that diagram is absolutely horrible. The heart and kidneys, in particular do not even remotely resemble their actual shape and size.
+1
Level 37
Jul 25, 2018
Yes you are right - the lungs are much bigger as is the liver and I'm not a medical professional, but then again this quiz isn't for medical professionals, at least there will be many learning about the organs in the body which is a good springboard to learn more - perhaps more accurately.

Isn't it a picture of a slice, like reading one image from a mri scan? Of course an mri usually slices top of head to sole of feet rather than front to back, which would need a bigger mri. That doesn't give the image of the whole organ shape at all. A map that gave a whole heart or kidney shape etc would not be accurate either because if you just open up the chest (Watching Silent Witness etc) and open it like a book you would not see the heart immediately in its whole shape. Or the kidneys etc. Because they are all fit together like a neatly packed suitcase.

Please accept "gallbladder" (one word) for "gall bladder" (two words). In most dialects of English, it's a single word.

When you have the time Jiao, could you possibly update the SVG to make the small intestine connect with the stomach. I've been studying the human body for quite a while now, and the small intestine is divided into two parts. One is a tube about a quarter the size of the segment displayed on this SVG that connects that segment to the stomach, and it is where the gallbladder and pancreas are attached to. I'm not asking for you to have the small instestines separately, just add that tube that connects the stomach to the small intestine before the top of the large intestine. Also, the title should be changed to major organs, as anything that is made up of different functioning tissues working to accomplish the same purpose is an organ, even our skin.
+1
Level 67
Feb 26, 2021
This quiz has been troubling me for some time now. I made it at a time in which user SVG-maps were still new and before I saw any attempts to make non-geography quizzes using the new feature. I was surprised when this quiz was featured, and when it became quite popular too. I've had a desire to redo the map or at least fix some problems I have with it, but on the other hand I am not confident enough in myself to make an accurate representation of the human body, considering my lack of knowlege in biology. However, as it stands I find the 'map', or diagram, unsatisfactory, and so this quiz has been in an odd sort of limbo for the past four years.I would like to do something about this, but unfortunately I haven't though of the best course of action yet. It's a very odd 'map', and not one that is easy to modify without a complete overhaul.
+1
Level 67
Feb 26, 2021
I can fix the title, or maybe the description, too. Around this time some of the featured quizzes had titles such as 'European Cities on the map', etc. with these sorts of quizzes including a handful of of answers, so I had this in mind when I made (and titled) the quiz. Clearly my train of thought wasn't universal, based on the comments of all the organs I missed, from 2016 to present day. This quiz just feels outdated considering the heights set by Jetpunk quizzes in 2021!
