Within the region described as the hypogastric or hypogastrium, you can find most of the small and large intestine, the bladder, and depending on how you divide things up, portions of the stomach, the kidneys, etc.  It is generally defined as the region of the abdomen below the navel.

The epigastric region, or the epigastrium, the region above the navel, contains the liver, the pancreas and a portion of the stomach, again depending in some sense on where you are going to divide things up.
