Btw the left lob and the inferior vena cava

6

8

Bile Salts

Formed from cholesterol
Important for the emulsifying and absorption of fatty elements from the intestines

9

Hepatic Ducts

Liver releases additional bile that enters here

Cystic = Bladder

11

Passes behind the head of the pancreas to the Duodenum alongside the main pancreatic duct
