Liver Bile Canaliculi and Sinusoids SEM

Scanning electron micrographs of a fractured surface of rat livers. (a) Control liver. Note the chicken wire-like anastomosing network of bile canaliculi. Canalicular lumina are uniformly filled with microvilli.

arrowheads - bile canaliculi (channels shown shown as narrow paired lines)

S - sinusoid
