Question: Is the diaphragm located in your body?

The diaphragm, located below the lungs, is the major muscle of respiration. It is a large, dome-shaped muscle that contracts rhythmically and continually, and most of the time, involuntarily. Upon inhalation, the diaphragm contracts and flattens and the chest cavity enlarges.

Where is the diaphragm located in the female body?

The diaphragm is a thin skeletal muscle that sits at the base of the chest and separates the abdomen from the chest.

How do you know where your diaphragm is?

The diaphragm separates the lungs from the abdominal organs. The abdominal organs are more dense (whiter) than the air-filled lungs (blacker). Each hemidiaphragm should appear as a smooth, domed contour. The right hemidiaphragm is usually a little higher than the left.
