Anatomy of Associated Digestive Organs

The digestive tract has a number of associated organs we should be able to identify on models or cadavers... Of course the cadavers are too star-style to have their pictures taken unless it's paparazzi style, and I just can't do that to a sweet old (dead) man. SO here's hoping you can pick them out in the flesh too. a Montana University has been nice enough to put cadaver organ pics up

For a great overview of the entire digestive system photos et al check out Lake Michigan College's web site Many photos here in this lab section have been from their collection. There are simple descriptions and tutorials. main A&P page at Lake Michigan Comm College Cruise the site in between my-spacing or face-booking all your buddies... Check out the interactive colon; it's loads of fun!
Here's a liver picture you can find with interactive labels on the afore mentioned web site:
