Caption: Liver cirrhosis. False-colour scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the cell structure in a lobule of the liver, affected by cirrhosis. Hepatic cells (dark brown) surround a blood carrying sinusoid (blue channel) in a three-dimensional network. The liver is a blood filtering organ; liver cells are specialized for cleaning the blood. However, typical in cirrhosis, fibres & nodules of connec- tive tissue (light brown) have invaded the area damaging liver cells and their filtering ability and may even disrupt the blood flow. Causes of liver cirrhosis include alcohol abuse and chronic hepatitis. Magnification: x1,700 at 6x7cm size. Magnification: x2,730 at 4x5 inch size.
