Caption: Bronchial epithelium. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) showing cilia (tiny microscopic hairs) on the lining of a bronchus (airway). Rhythmic movements of the cilia serve to move mucus and trapped particles away from the gas-exchanging parts of the lung, and towards the throat, where they can be expelled by coughing, or swallowed.
