  1. Image Upload 1
    glisson capsule (liver)
  2. Image Upload 2
    • liver lobule
    • (look for the central vein first(small empty space in middle with not connective tissue), then look for portal triads with connective tissue encasing the lobule.
  3. Image Upload 3
    hepatocyte (the spindly looking cells are kupffer cells)
  4. Image Upload 4
    • central vein(liver)
    • remember!! no CT
  5. Image Upload 5
    kupffer cells=phago black ink
  6. Image Upload 6
    portal triad. left to right=portal vein/artery/bile duct
  7. Image Upload 7
    space of disse (b/t hepatocyte(right) and sinusoid(left)
  8. Image Upload 8
    • sinusoid (liver)
    • note the fenestrations=allows quick transfer
  9. Image Upload 9
    bile canaluculi between hepatocytes. note the tight junctions
  10. Image Upload 10
    hepatocytes with glycogen. more dense red=more glycogen, less=less
  11. Image Upload 11
    Identify the three layers of this tissue
    gallbladder. from left to right

    • Mucosa
    • -simple columnar epithelium (continuous with most of bile duct)
    • -lamina propria

    • Muscularis Externe
    • -layers of mixed smooth muscle

    • Serosa(visceral peritoneum)
    • -this is the "free edge of the gallbladder.
    • -if pressed against the stomach=thicker and now called "adventitia"
  12. Image Upload 12
    identify the two cell types. left and right
    • Pancreas/exocrine
    • left=secretory acini=secrete the exocrine stuff
    • right=centroaciner acini=first part of pancreatic duct
  13. Image Upload 13
    • intercalated duct (pancreas/exocrine)
    • =the first duct of the pancreatic duct
  14. Image Upload 14
    • intralobular duct (pancreas/exocrine)
    • =second part of pancreatic duct (slightly larger than intercalated)
  15. Image Upload 15
    • interlobular duct (pancreas/exocrine)
    • =third part of pancreatic duct= has larger connective tissue that interlobular
  16. Image Upload 16
    • islets of langerhans (pancreas) 
    • =houses endocrine
