Anatomic structure of the liver. This diagram shows the gross view of the diaphragmatic and visceral surface of the liver, with labeled anatomic landmarks found on both surfaces. The enlarged cross-sectional area of the liver (bottom) shows the general microscopic organization of the liver into lobules. Note the presence of hepatic portal triads at the periphery of each lobule, with the terminal hepatic venule (central vein) in the center of the lobule.
