  5. Image Upload 1
    What is demonstrated by the arrow?
    main lobar fissure
  6. What divides the left lobe of the liver into medial and lateral segments?
    left intersegmental fissure
  7. Where is the caudate lobe situated?
    on the posterior aspect of the liver in between the IVC (posterior border) and the ligamentum venosum (anterior border)
  8. Image Upload 2
    What is demonstrated by the arrow?
    ligamentum venosum
  9. This normal variation of the caudate lobe appears as the anteriormedial extension of the caudate process and may appear separate from the liver mimicing lymphadenopathy.

  11. Image Upload 4
    What vessels are demonstrated above?
    hepatic veins
  12. This hepatic vessel courses within the main lobar fissure and separates the anterior segment of the right lobe from the medial segment of the left.
    What is the middle hepatic vein
  13. The left intersegmental fissure, which separates the medial segment of the left lobe from the lateral segment, can be divided into
    cranial, middle, and caudal sections
  14. Located in the right intersegmental fissure, this divides the cephalic aspect of the anterior and posterior segments of the right lobe
    Right Hepatic Vein
  15. Located in the main lobar fissure this separates right and left lobes
    middle hepatic vein
  16. Located in the left intersegmental fissure this divides the cephalic aspect of the medial and lateral segments of the left lobe.
    left hepatic vein
  17. Located in the anterior segment of the right lobe (intrasegmental) this courses centrally in the anterior segment of the right lobe
