This page lists histological resources that relate to the Gastrointestinal tract and its associated organs.
The following links are to the Virtual Slidebox of Histology sets of slides used in UNSW Anatomy.
The following slides are from the UNSW, School of Anatomy, Histology Slide Set 1998. Slides are numbered according to the Histology Set number. The tissues listed relate to this developing system. Note that most slides are from mature tissues (unless otherwise indicated, see also all slides).
