Liver histology


Liver Histology. Illustration of the internal structure of the liver and biliary system. The liver is the largest internal organ. It regulates chemical levels in the blood and excretes the bile that helps remove waste products. The liver is made up of thousands of lobules that are connected to ducts that ultimately form the hepatic duct. The hepatic duct transports the bile to the gallbladder and duodenum (the first part of the small intestine). The liver also processes blood and breaks down nutrients and drugs into forms that are easier for the body to use.
