In 2015, TVASurg team presented at the Association of Medical Illustrators (AMI) annual meeting on Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary (HPB) Anatomy. In this presentation, we shared our perspective as visual communicators. Using a plethora of surgical footage and 3D computer models, we drew comparisons between how abdominal anatomy is commonly depicted, and what we actually observe in surgery.
This material is adapted from the presentation and divided into a three-part video series. In the first video of this series, we’ll focus on the structure above and behind the liver. We review the liver segments based on the Couinaud classification system and discuss the ligaments and surface landmarks of the liver.
