  1. Image Upload
    glisson capsule (liver)
  2. Image Upload
    • 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
    hepatocyte (the spindly looking cells are kupffer cells)
  4. Image Upload
    • central vein(liver)
    • remember!! no CT
  5. Image Upload
    kupffer cells=phago black ink
  6. Image Upload
    portal triad. left to right=portal vein/artery/bile duct
  7. Image Upload
    space of disse (b/t hepatocyte(right) and sinusoid(left)
  8. Image Upload
    • sinusoid (liver)
    • note the fenestrations=allows quick transfer
  9. Image Upload
    bile canaluculi between hepatocytes. note the tight junctions
  10. Image Upload
    hepatocytes with glycogen. more dense red=more glycogen, less=less
  11. Image Upload
    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
    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
    • intercalated duct (pancreas/exocrine)
    • =the first duct of the pancreatic duct
  14. Image Upload
    • intralobular duct (pancreas/exocrine)
    • =second part of pancreatic duct (slightly larger than intercalated)
  15. Image Upload
    • interlobular duct (pancreas/exocrine)
    • =third part of pancreatic duct= has larger connective tissue that interlobular
  16. Image Upload
    • islets of langerhans (pancreas) 
    • =houses endocrine
