How to use Caudate in a sentence
This is the caudate lobe.
The Spigelian (s) and caudate lobes (c) belong to the right half of the liver, the latter being usually a leaf shaped lobe attached by its stalk to the Spigelian, and having its blade flattened between the right lateral lobe and the right kidney.
The vena cava (vc) is always found to the right of the Spigelian lobe and dorsal to the stalk of the caudate.
The Spigelian lobe is represented by a flat surface between the postal fissure and the posterior border, not distinctly marked off from the left lateral by a fissure of the ductus venosus, as this vessel is buried deep in the hepatic substance, but the caudate lobe is distinct and tongue-shaped, its free apex reaching nearly to the border of the right lateral lobe.
Note the red dot in the white matter just left of the caudate nucleus in the upper middle of the left hemisphere.Advertisement
