Liver and biliary anatomy

Ductus choledochus is the common bile duct and is formed by the union of the common hepatic duct and the cystic duct (from the gall bladder). It is later joined by the pancreatic duct to form the ampulla of Vater. There, the two ducts are surrounded by the muscular sphincter of Oddi.

    Hi, recently launched a free interactive "Human Body Maps" tool. I thought your readers would be interested in our body map of the liver:

    It would be much appreciated if you could include this tool on and / or share with friends and followers. Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Thank you in advance.
