Caption: Lining of the duodenum. Endoscopic view of the lining of the duodenum - the first section of the small intestine - showing lipid (fat, white) filled villi. Villi are numerous tiny, finger-like projections on the epithelial lining of the intestinal wall. They provide a greatly increased surface area to aid in the absorption of nutrients released during digestion. Here, they have absorbing fats, which are stored in the tissue below.
