Part of the Series in Radiology book series (SERA, volume 11)


On histological sections, the hepatic lobule has been described as the anatomical unit of the liver. It is made up of cords of liver cells surrounded by the blood sinusoids radiating from the periphery of the lobule towards a central vein. The sinusoids are supplied with blood by portal venules and hepatic artery branches running in the interlobular spaces or portal tracts at the periphery of the lobules.
