bile produced by the liver flows through the hepatic ducts to the common hepatic duct. then it goes into the common bile duct to the duodenum. when that duct is full, bile goes into the cystic duct and gallbladder. bile ducts
all the bile ducts form a treelike structure called the.... biliary tree
part of the abdominal aorta where arteries branch off to take blood to the stomach, small intestine, liver, gallbladder and pancreas celiac trunk
