- spaces between the liver cells is sinusoids
Along the periphery of each lobule there an area filled with connective tissue.
This area is called the portal canals.
Portal canals has
1. branch of portal vein
2. branch of hepatic artery
3. interlobular bile duct
knowns as PORTAL TRIAD

The blood flows towards the centre and open into a vein in the middle called central vein .
