Object Name # of Images Description
Vacuoles 1 In this instance, the vacuoles are inside a macrophage. In general a vacuole is an intracellular, membrane-limited spherical space containing liquid or solid matter.
Vallate papilla 1 A structure containing taste buds in the tongue.
Valve leaflets 1 Valves prevent backflow of blood or lymph.
Valve of tributary vein 1 View of a small vein entering a larger one. Note the valve preventing backflow.
Vas deferens 1 A musculoepithelial tube which begins in the tail of the epididymis and extends to ejaculatory ducts. It is about 30 cm in length in human. The wall has three layers of helically-arranged smooth muscle.
Vas deferens (c.s.) 1 A musculoepithelial tube which begins in the tail of the epididymis and extends to ejaculatory ducts. It is about 30 cm in length. The wall has three layers of helically-arranged smooth muscle.
Vas deferens epithelium 1 Pseudostratified epithelium with giant microvilli.
Vas recta 1 One capillary of a bundle formed by the efferent arterioles of juxtamedullary glomeruli. They make a hairpin loop in the medulla and empty into veins at the corticomedullary junction. Very thin walls. Participate in concentration of urine.
Vas vasorum 1 A vessel of the blood vessel wall. Literally, vas vasorum means vessel of a vessel.
Vasa recta 2 Bundles of capillaries formed by the efferent arterioles of juxtamedullary glomeruli. They make a hairpin loop in the medulla and empty into veins at the corticomedullary junction. Very thin walls. Participate in concentration of urine.

Vasa vasorum 1 Vessels of the blood vessel wall. Literally, vasa vasorum means vessels of a vessel.
Vasa vasorum 2 Vessels of the blood vessel wall. Literally, vasa vasorum means vessels of a vessel.
Vascular pole 1 Entrance and exit of the blood vessels the kidney glomerulus.
Vein 5 Carries (usually deoxygenated) blood toward the heart.
Vein 1 Carries (usually deoxygenated) blood toward the heart.
Vein 1 Carries (usually deoxygenated) blood toward the heart.
Vein 4 Carries (usually deoxygenated) blood toward the heart.
Vein 2 Carries (usually deoxygenated) blood toward the heart.
Vein lumen 1 (Self-explanatory)
Vein lumen 4 (Self-explanatory)
Vein wall 1 (Self-explanatory)
Veins 1 Carry (usually deoxygenated) blood toward the heart.
Vena cava inferior c.s. 1 Specialized large vein bringing deoxygenated blood from the lower part of the body to the heart. It is said that the media is almost non-existent and the adventitia is the thickest layer of the wall.
Vena cava inferior l.s. 1 Specialized large vein bringing deoxygenated blood from the lower part of the body to the heart. It is said that the media is almost non-existent and the adventitia is the thickest layer of the wall.
Venous lumina 1 (Self-explanatory)
Venous sinuses 1 In this instance, in the spleen.
Venous wall 1 As is typical, it is thinner than the corresponding arterial wall. The lumen of a vein is seldom round. In the CNS it is often difficult to distinguish between arteries and veins because both have thin walls.
Ventricular fold 1 Superior lateral pleat of laryngeal mucosa. Lamina propria contains mixed glands and sometimes, lymphatic nodules.
Ventricular folds 1 Superior lateral pleats of laryngeal mucosa. Lamina propria contains mixed glands and sometimes, lymphatic nodules.
Venule 2 Smallest vein. The postcapillary venule is the smallest of venules.
Venule 3 Smallest vein. The postcapillary venule is the smallest of venules.
Venule 6 Smallest vein. The postcapillary venule is the smallest of venules.
Venule (lumen) 1 (Self-explanatory)
Venules 1 Smallest veins. The postcapillary venule is the smallest of venules.
Venules 1 Smallest veins. The postcapillary venule is the smallest of venules.
Venules 2 Smallest veins. The postcapillary venule is the smallest of venules.
Vessel 1 It is sometimes difficult to classify every type of vessel.
Vessel wall 1 It is sometimes difficult to classify every type of vessel.
Vessels 1 It is sometimes difficult to classify every type of vessel.
Vestibular membrane 1 Two-squamous-cell-thick membrane that separates scala vestibuli (perilymph) from scala media (endolymph) in the cochlea.
Vestibular nerve 1 Contains axons coming from the vestibular nucleus (in this case).
Vestibular nerve fiber 1 In this case, the dendrites originating from the vestibular ganglion.
Vestibular nerve fibers 1 In this case, the dendrites originating from the vestibular ganglion.
Villi 1 Fingerlike processes to increase surface area. Composed of epithelium and lamina propria.
Villi 1 Fingerlike processes to increase surface area. Composed of epithelium and lamina propria.
Villi 1 Fingerlike processes to increase surface area. Composed of epithelium and lamina propria.
Villus 1 A fingerlike process to increase surface area. Composed of epithelium and lamina propria.
Villus 1 A fingerlike process to increase surface area. Composed of epithelium and lamina propria.
Villus 1 A fingerlike process to increase surface area. Composed of epithelium and lamina propria.
Visual cortex 1 Located in the occipital lobe of the cerebrum.
Vocal cord 1 Tendon-like inferior lateral pleat of laryngeal mucosa. Closely associated with the thyro-arytenoid muscle. Plays an important role in sound production.
Vocal cord 1 Tendon-like inferior lateral pleat of laryngeal mucosa. Closely associated with the thyro-arytenoid muscle. Plays an important role in sound production.
Vocal fold 1 Tendon-like inferior lateral pleat of laryngeal mucosa. Includes the thyro-arytenoid muscle.
Vocal folds 1 Tendon-like inferior lateral pleats of laryngeal mucosa. Include the thyro-arytenoid muscle.
Volkmans canal 1 A channel containing blood vessels in the compact bone. Usually located at right angles to the Haversian systems.
