Gallstones, artwork

Gallstones. Cutaway computer artwork showing gallstones (brown, lower left) in a human gall bladder (red, oval). The gall bladder is a small muscular sac lying under the liver (not seen). It expels bile (a fat emulsifier) into the intestine through the bile duct (tube, lower right). Gallstones are hard deposits of salts or cholesterol that form in the gall bladder when the chemical composition of bile is upset. They are most common in women, the elderly and the obese. They usually cause no symptoms unless one becomes stuck in the bile duct, which can lead to acute pain, jaundice and infection. Surgical removal of the gall bladder is sometimes necessary

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases a remarkable computer artwork of gallstones, offering an intriguing glimpse into the inner workings of the human body. The image features a cutaway view of a vibrant red gall bladder, nestled discreetly beneath the liver (which remains unseen). Gallstones, depicted as brown formations in the lower left corner, are hardened deposits that develop when there is an imbalance in bile composition. While typically symptomless, these solidified accumulations can cause significant discomfort if they become lodged in the bile duct. This unfortunate occurrence may lead to acute pain, jaundice, and even infection. In such cases, surgical removal of the gall bladder becomes necessary for relief. The illustration emphasizes not only the anatomy but also highlights how this disorder affects certain demographics more frequently. Women, elderly individuals, and those who are obese are particularly prone to developing gallstones. With its white background and meticulous attention to detail, this artwork effectively conveys both medical precision and aesthetic appeal. Provided by Science Photo Library – renowned for their exceptional collection of scientific imagery – this print serves as a valuable resource for healthcare professionals or anyone intrigued by biology and medicine. It offers insight into gastroenterology while shedding light on conditions within our bodies that may go unnoticed until symptoms arise.
