What is the diagnosis?

A 55 year old man had chest and abdominal discomfort after a long haul flight. The chest discomfort resembled his usually stable angina pectoris. On admission his heart rate was 90 beats/min and his blood pressure was 95/52 mm Hg.

His arterial blood gases, pH, and lactate were normal. What does the supine abdominal radiograph show and what sign suggests the diagnosis (fig 1⇓)?
